A group of pupils at Arran High School have been getting their creative juices flowing and came up with a whole host of craft items which they sold at a charity stall at the recent Santa’s Sparkle in Lamlash.
As a result of their efforts they raised a grand total of £162 which this week they handed over to crew members of the Arran RNLI.
Among the items they made were little stone monsters, stone cacti, Christmas candles, tree decorations and cards.
The pupils involved were: Jemma Totty, Ben Worthington, Michael Nicholl, Kyle Farquhar, Gordon Bloy, Kayleigh Easton, Caitlin McGarry, Rhys Jackson, Catherine Smith, Ruben Bowers, Rhianna Fox, Megan Green, Kaitlyn Haddow, Caitlin Fraser and Neha Bino. They were working under the direction of teachers Jen Christie and Eileen Gregg.
All of them are working towards a Saltire Award for volunteering and are now coming up with new products for the Easter Brodick market. The charity for this new venture still has to be decided.
