We held a silver collection at both the P6/7 Pantomime and the P1-3 Nativity Shows.  We managed to collect over £600 and this money has been sent to the Maggie’s Centre in Glasgow to help people suffering from cancer.  Thank you to all who donated.


Shelter Box

Through all our fundraising in the classes, the competition to see how many people we could get in the shelter box tent (130 altogether), the staff dinner and the money collected at the end of term service we have raised over £1100 for the Shelter Box appeal.  This means we will be able to send two Shelter Boxes to a disaster area.  Well Done to everyone involved!

Shelter Box

September 26, 2007

Recently the Rotary club of Lochgilphead came and taught us about the charity Shelter Box. Shelter Box is a charity that sends big green boxes to Africa. The boxes are filled with equipment for families. The box includes a tent that can fit 10 people in it, sleeping bags, a cooking stove and cooking equipment, an activity pack for children, water containers, purification tablets, ponchos, ropes and bin bags. The shelter box helps places that have been affected by tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions. Lochgilphead Primary are trying to raise £490 to buy a shelter box and send it to Africa.
