On Friday 24th February we had a very special visitor at Strachur Primary School – the mascot for the Beatson Hospital in Glasgow, Bella Beatson. The children were very excited and some came to school dressed in black and yellow to match Bella! Bella’s escort, Amy, told the children about the work the Beatson does and how people with cancer can be looked after there. We put our donations in Bella’s collection can and raised £121.30 for the charity.
We would like to thank Katie Wilson, Primary 7 for her idea to invite Bella to our school. We are the first school in Argyll and Bute to have her visit and we feel very lucky. We hope Bella goes onto encourage more people to support the Beatson charity.
