Record-breaking amount raised at Raasay coffee morning

The annual Raasay Primary School coffee day has raised an amazing £3,321.70 for school funds.

Pupils and staff extended a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped make the recent coffee day a success, with the total amount raised a new record.

Thanks also go to the parent council for organising and running their usual cafe with tasty lunches and snacks; all the businesses, near and far, who donated prizes; friends and family who helped to organise, man the stalls and tidy up afterwards; all those involved in the school’s social enterprise project; and, in particular, thanks for the generosity and support from the local businesses and community groups in sponsoring the venture.

Wilma Duncan, head teacher at Raasay Primary School, said: “The staff and pupils all put in a great effort, and the response and generosity of the Rassay community has been overwhelming. The final fundraising total was terrific, and reflects once again the support the island has for its school.”
