The Galloway News - - FRONT PAGE -

The newly- dec­o­rated Kirk­bean Pri­mary School hall pro­vided a fit­ting venue for a soup and sand­wich fundraiser on Satur­day.

And, as al­ways, the lo­cal community lent their full sup­port to boost school cof­fers to the tune of £350.

Act­ing head teacher He­len An­der­son was de­lighted with the turnout for the day which was orginised by the par­ent coun­cil and staff.

“Ev­ery­thing we raised will go to par­ent coun­cil funds,” He­len said.

“We are hop­ing to raise money for a learn­ing as­sis­tant and are also sav­ing for play­ground equip­ment.

“We want to in­stall an ob­sta­cle course in our out­side space.

“We made £350 which is re­ally amaz­ing. The place was packed.

“It was a real community event – they all came and any­one who could not make it handed in en­velopes with do­na­tions.”
