A FAMILY dedicated to supporting the life-changing work that Anna Ritchie School does for its pupils has once again donated a cheque to the school after organising a sponsored cycle.

Linda Cardno and Keith Burnett, whose 5-year-old son Stevie-Joe attends the school, organised the sponsored cycle from Peterhead to Longside and raised £635.76 which will go towards the school funds for a new minibus.

The couple, who have undertaken fundraising for the school in the past, says it’s just one way they can repay the support the school has provided to their son.

Linda told the Buchanie: “In the last two years that Stevie-Joe has been at the school he has came on leaps and bounds, and we can’t thank Anna Ritchie enough for what they have done.”

Pupils Michael Strachan and Charles John Penny also took part in the cycle along with the help of their family and friends, who supported them along the way.

Stevie-Joe’s dad, Keith, and auntie Chelly and uncle Robert also took part in the run, as well as Michael’s grandad George Strachan and CJ’s mum and dad, Amanda and Charles John.

Ina Strachan, Samantha Redpath, Gemma Geddes and Samantha Strachan also supported the worthy cause by walking along the railway line.

Headteacher Ishbel Cruickshank added: “We are very lucky to have the continued support of both the family and friends of pupils’ here at Anna Ritchie. It’s excellent that people organise their own individual fundraisers to help the school and it is very much appreciated. The money raised from the sponsored cycle will go towards our minibus fund.”
