ANNA Ritchie School have received a generous donation of £863 after a recent charity football match held at Catto Park.

One of the fundraiser organisers, Keith Burnett said: “I used to come here so I know what it is like.

“It is all for the kids, we just wanted to help them out.”

Fellow organiser, Gordon Coats said: “My little brother goes to Anna Ritchie so we wanted to give something back to the school.”

Head teacher Ishbel Cruickshank said: “We are very grateful for the donation.

“We are looking to do something with our playground and get some new outdoor equipment.

“The boys are desperate for football goals - they have always asked for some.

“We would also like to say thank you to the community and those who came out to sponsor the football event because they are a great help to us.”
