Bridge of Don Academy Pupils Raise Funds for Cornerstone

Pupils from Bridge of Don Academy raised over £160 pounds for Cornerstone, one of Scotland's leading providers of social care.

The sixth year pupils from the Iona House raised the money as part of series of fundraising events which included making and serving a homemade afternoon tea to their teachers, a students versus teachers football tournament and a day of face painting.

Natalie Milne, one of the students involved in organising the events said "It was really fun and the whole school got involved. The students versus teachers football match was really close, but the teachers just scraped a win in the end. The teachers also really enjoyed the afternoon tea - I think the might want us to do one every year!"

The Iona House pupils chose Cornerstone because the charity started in Aberdeen. In addition families within the school have accessed Cornerstone's services and the pupils wanted to recognise the work the charity does in the local community.

John Grant, Deputy Chief Executive for Cornerstone, added "We're delighted with the Bridge of Don Academy pupil's fundraising efforts. I'd like to thank them for their brilliant fundraising ideas and all the hard work that went into organising this.  Their generous donation will help us continue to enable the people we support to enjoy a valued life in the local community."
