Kingarth Street Fundraisers

A group of kind hearted Primary pupils have raised thousands for several charities - fundraising and cutting off their locks to be made into wigs. 

It was a trip to the hairdressers to remember for Imogen Lavelle (P3), Alyssa Lavelle and Ameerah Hanif (both P2) as they parted with their hair for a number of good causes. 

Over the weekend, sisters Ameerah and Mariam visited neighbours with charity buckets and took a trip to the Rainbow Room in Uddingston, with Ameerah chopping over 10 inches of her hair off. 

In just one week, the sisters have managed to raise over £3,880 which will go towards the 2017 School charity, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice. 

On the same weekend, sisters Imogen and Alyssa took a trip to Jecc's Hair Design in Newton Mearns, with Imogen cutting 11 inches of hair off and Alyssa chopping 9 inches off.

The pair have raised £1,517.50, which will be split between the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and the Scottish Cot Death Trust. 

All of the hair will now go to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs for boys and girls throughout the UK and Ireland who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. 

In additional to this, Kingarth Street pupils have managed to raise an incredible £3,000 for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice this term through their creative fundraising efforts. 

House winners are as follows: 

Lochiel- Elise Corbel for selling homemade slime

Argyll - Campbell Waugh for checking the tread on neighbours' tyres

Montrose - Rachael and Jenna Gow for hosting a 'Guess the teddy's birthday stall' 

Stuart - Daisy and Charlie Windows for planting over 100 bulbs at their allotment

Very well done to all of our Primary pupils, who have raised over £8,000 for several fantastic causes.
