The Galloway News - - SCHOOL NEWS -

Dalry Sec­ondary School has signed up to Poppy Scot­land’s“1918 Poppy Pledge”to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of the Armistice and the end of WW1.

The pledge aims to raise money to hon­our the men and women who fought in the First World War and in the many con­flicts since.

It also raises vi­tal funds to help con­tinue sup­port for the Armed Forces com­mu­nity in Scot­land to­day.

Poppy Scot­land has asked or­gan­i­sa­tions around the coun­try to each try to raise £1,918 to help im­prove the lives of exser­vice­men.

The young peo­ple at Dalry have al­ready raised sev­eral hun­dred pounds through var­i­ous themed ac­tiv­i­ties sup­ported by gen­er­ous do­na­tions from lo­cal busi­nesses.

The fundrais­ing drive con­tin­ues to­day with a cof­fee morn­ing in the school from 10am–noon.
