Conga for charity

 On Saturday 28th November, pupils from Castlemilk High School participated a ‘Glasgow the Caring City’ charity event. The event was to raise awareness and funds for local child poverty projects.  This was supported by BeYonder & The Scottish Federation of Grocers.

 Many schools, colleges and organisations took part across the city where they hosted Conga events in their own place with a number of schools coming to take part in the main event at Hampden.

 Some schools opted just to conga where others raised money for their own schools / organisations with some also raising money for local projects in their areas.

 It is hoped that in light of the success of this year’s event which was the first, that a proposal will be made to Holyrood to make this a national event, again raising local funds for local schools and projects to raise awareness and funds for child poverty in Scotland.

 The 4 students from Castlemilk High were brilliant ambassadors for the school and played a key role in supporting the event by empowering students from Hazelwood School to undertake full participation in the main event. Well done to all!
