Carrick digs deep for Children in Need

Organisations across Carrick were raising money for Children in Need last week including schools, shops and community groups.

There were events at Girvan Primary School and Girvan Academy and at Dailly Primary School and Nursery Class they had great fun raising a whopping £240.63 for Children in Need.

The primary children dressed in pyjamas for the day and brought their favourite teddies to school and nursery.

Some of the pupils sold homemade tablet, jewellery and crafts during the week. The pupils also took part in colouring-in and writing competitions, a spotty treasure hunt, bought delicious cakes donated by parents, decorated biscuits and had their faces painted with spots, Pudsey and Bella designs. Everyone had a very enjoyable day!

Cairn Primary had a non-uniform day and the children were asked to wear spotty clothing as part of the Children in Need fund raising day.

The P5/6 class organised a hula-hoop competition and there was a winner from each class for the child who could hula-hoop the longest.

The school raised approx. £130 for this worthwhile charity.
