Sponsored Walk (26/06/2019}

During the summer term pupils in Secondary One to Four at Stronsay Junior High School organised and completed a sponsored walk. The initial idea for fundraising was to support mental health charities and suicide prevention. After some research the pupils decided that they would like to support The Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent institute (RSABI) and the Fishermen’s Mission, as these two charities support the local industries in our island community. The final total for donations was £282 which has been split equally between their two chosen charities, On 4th November David Sinclair, from The Fishermen’s Mission visited the school to collect the cheque and to speak to the secondary parliament about his role within the charity. A cheque has also been sent to RSABI. The Secondary parliament would like to thank everyone who supported them and helped them to raise funds and awareness of these two charities.
