You may recall that we informed you that three of our three Primary 6 girls, Ava Lily, Izzy and Maya had reached the final stages of the Poppyscotland Fundraising Heroes competition for their fundraising efforts for Remembrance Day.
We have just received an official email to inform us that the girls have won in their category: Best Fundraising Photograph! This has earned them £500 in Amazon vouchers for our school. The backstory to the photograph demonstrates the girls’ selfless initiative to raise funds for this very important charity.
Confirmation was received from Yvonne Caddell, Learning and Volunteer coordinator today. She writes:
I am extremely delighted to announce that ‘The Pineapple Squad’ from Portpatrick Primary School have won the Fundraising Heroes! Competition 2020 in the category of ‘Best Fundraising-in-Action Photo’.
Our massive and warmest congratulations to Maya McNeill, Ava Lily Orr-Ewing and Isabella White.
I’m sure you will agree the girls truly deserved their win. This photo perfectly captures the girls’ enthusiasm for running their own initiative fundraising enterprise project. Looking at the results of the voting their school and local communities really got behind them and kept them in the lead throughout all of the weeks of voting!
All very best wishes and congratulations once again!
We are so proud of our girls for their dedication to others. It is quite an achievement, particular when the winner was decided by a national voting poll. Thank you to everyone who shared, voted and supported the girls in their efforts.
