Fundraising Update

Our Fundraising total is now sitting at £2747, so we're now well past the halfway point towards achieving our goal.

Thank you and well done to everyone who has contributed to fundraising events and activities so far. These have included...

The S5/6 social, pyjama day, bake sales, individual donations, football tournament, S1/2 Christmas disco, donations from the Reid Memorial Church and the sale of some very tasty tablet!

We've still got a few activities coming up in the next few weeks including:

Take Me Out / Would I Lie to You show
JGHS staff quiz night
Raffle (available to buy from anyone going on the trip in February)
Cryptic Quiz competitions (available from Eilidh Grant)
Sponsored dip
More bake sales!

Most of the money we raise is used for keeping the soup kitchens at Zwelibanzi and Dloko High Schools running all year round. Each kitchen provides food for 250-300 pupils from the most disadvantaged backgrounds. A small proportion is used for annual projects such as painting classrooms or improving resources.

Hopefully we'll soon smash our £5000 target! Thanks for your support.
