Stockbridge Primary School Fundraising Project: June 2013

25 July 2013

Congratulations to all of the pupils in P6 who have been taking part in a fundraising project with HOTS teachers.

The children worked incredibly hard to raise money for 3 local charities; The Yard, Edinburgh Young Carers and Barnardos Edinburgh.

The class organised a variety of events including a school disco, book swap, mini olympics, supermarket bag packing, food fair and raffle.

The final total raised was £909 which has been shared between the three charities.

Jenny from The Yard, Tracey from Edinburgh Young Carers Project and Barnardos worker, Johnny, attended the P6 celebration of success assembly where they received a cheque on behalf of their organisation.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the project.

Wagamamas

9 May 2013

The feedback has been great from the group about their trip to Wagamamas and how much fun they had trying something a little different. The young people and we workers felt the environment, food and service was really fun and friendly! We felt that all the staff at Wagamamas Lothian Road really made an effort to support the group and was amazing. I would like to thank you so much for this experience, your consideration, time and generosity have really made a group of young carers very happy.

Thank you very much again; especially you Peter and Anna, a lovely time was had by all.
