Well done to the Nursery who managed to raise £741 through sponsorship for their Wellie Waddle! Here are some of the children and staff presenting the cheque to Stephanie Bain of Ability Shetland.
We “Went Purple for CLAN” on Friday 21st September (which also happens to be Mrs Missenden’s birthday, so a great excuse for cake)…and raised an amazing £385.90! Thank you everyone for your support.
Lights! Camera! Action!
Well, not quite….but we did have a visit from Ian (the camera man), Mari (the coordinator), a lass from Logan Air bearing gifts of Tunnock’s Teacakes and Caramel Wafers, and Sean Batty (the STV weatherman!)….all supporting our fundraising efforts for the STV Children’s Appeal.
Cat Duncan saw the advert on Facebook, asking about community groups etc who might be interested in a visit… and given that Disability Shetland are supported by STV Children’s appeal… and that the school hosts a joint Youth Club with them every month…and that some people have a bit of a “thing” for Sean…and it would be a great experience for our pupils… I got in touch with Mari and managed to book us a visit.
Sean was a great sport and did a mock weather report “live to camera” which was posted on STV Appeal’s Facebook page, along with photos from the afternoon.
Thanks as always go to everyone who helped make the event a success…from making the yummy fancies to the clearing up after…we couldn’t have raised the £112 without you!
The weather may not have been especially kind, however the spirit and generosity of our school community (and beyond) more than made up for the lack of sunshine.
Music, competitions, raffles, tombolas, plants, coastguard, fire service, poetry, kishie maakin, jewellery making, stampin up, face painting, craft, archery, stilts, unicycles, bouncy castle AND teas – there was something for everyone!
Approximately £1300 raised!!
I have no idea how we are going to top it next year!!
