St Fergus School pupils Aaron and Matthew present Emma Slesser with a cheque for the Archie Foundation

St Fergus School pupils presented a cheque to the ARCHIE Foundation on Tuesday after raising over £1,000.

The money was raised through a collection and raffles at the school’s Christmas concert and came to the grand total of £1,223.67.

Additional funds were collected through sales of toffee, handmade and sold by pupil Aaron, and bags of peat which were sold by pupil, Matthew.

The ARCHIE Foundation is a charity that makes a real difference to the lives of sick children in the North of Scotland and the Islands who need medical care in the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital.

Fundraising assistant for the ARCHIE Foundation, Emma Slesser visited the school to accept the cheque and told pupils that if every school in the area managed to raise the same amount they would be millionaires!

Emma said: “We would like to say a big thank you to all the pupils of St Fergus School, every penny raised will go towards our High 10 appeal to mark the Hospital’s tenth birthday.

“The money will enable us to give the hospital some TLC.

Emma added: “I really like the clever fundraising ideas especially selling bags of peat.

“Their fundraising efforts are really impressive.”
