Musical Fundraiser

Primary pupil, Clara McMorrow has raised almost £400 for Glasgow's Hospice after setting herself a musical fundraising challenge. 

Clara, who is in P2, managed to raise the incredible sum of money by completing a sponsored violin practice every single day for a week. 

Thanks to her creative idea, the money raised will now go towards helping the Brick by Brick Appeal to complete the new Hospice currently being built at Bellahouston Park.

Mum, Aimee McMorrow said: “I'm so proud of her for raising such an incredible amount of money, Clara usually only practices twice a week, but she really took on the challenge and did an hour every day, often more, and even a couple of impromptu performances.

“The idea of the challenge was to learn to help others and she was really excited about taking part.”

Fundraising Manager at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, Ashley Thomson added: "What a fantastic effort, we can’t thank Clara enough for her hard work, it’s a brilliant challenge and she really stepped up to take it on."

Very well done Clara!
