MANY people recently braved the rain for what turned out to be a truly Scottish summer barbecue event at Muckhart Primary.

The wet weather could not discourage people on Saturday, May 25, with thanks given to the many who donated nearly £1,500 for the school and a further £86.15 for The Gate charity in Alloa.

Becky Graham, one of the organisers from the parent council, said: “Huge thanks to members of our local community and families and friends of the school who came out in the rain to support us.

“Special thanks also to Cllr Graham Lindsay who came along with his children. His support of our school and our fundraising efforts is very much appreciated.”

The funding will “mean so much” for the school, she continued, adding that it “enables our amazing teachers to give our local children access to learning experiences and resources that otherwise would not be possible”.

Hats off to Miss Cannon and the P4-7 children, who did a “fantastic job” organising the Hook a Duck stall, which netted cash for the foodbank in Alloa.

Becky added: “The children were absolutely delighted with their achievement and can’t wait to hand over the donation to an incredibly worthwhile cause.

“We are also incredibly grateful for the generous donations from Sainsbury’s in Kinross who very kindly donated the bread rolls, the Co-op in Dollar who very kindly donated the condiments and Caulders in Kinross who donated plants for the plant stall.

“Special thanks also to all of the local businesses who generously gifted prizes for our raffle, we are always exceedingly grateful for their support every year.”

A further nod of appreciation goes to the children who donated their time generously to make sure the event was a great success as well as Jayne Price and Liz Logan who went above and beyond with their efforts.
