Cheque presentation


Last year Emma Shirley was diagnosed with Leukaemia, and was unable to start Primary 1 at Leswalt Primary school with all her wee friends.  Emma has subsequently missed lots of school and had months of treatment at Glasgow Children’s Hospital.   

In December, all the boys and girls from Leswalt Primary decided when they moved back to their newly refurbished school they would hold an open afternoon , with donations to support Emma.  £320 was raised in just over 2 hours at Leswalt Primary with visitors all donating generously. 

Emma is now feeling a lot better and has been in school for a few mornings.  All her friends from Leswalt Primary school handed over the money  raised.  £200 was given to the hospital for helping Emma and £120 was given to her parents to help with the costs of them having to go back up and down to Glasgow.  Emma still has to attend Glasgow Children’s hospital on a weekly basis.
