Pupils from Lomond School’s S6 charity committee recently presented the Children’s Hospices Across Scotland charity (CHAS) with a cheque for £1,000 raised through a variety of pupil fund-raising activities throughout 2019.

Lomond pupils have been supporting CHAS since 1993 and to date have raised more than £18,000 for this fantastic cause.

CHAS community fund-raiser Maxine Campbell said: “Lomond School have always been huge supporters of CHAS and have raised an incredible £18,259.29 since 1995.

“The school choose to support CHAS every year as their local charity by holding various small fund-raising events.

"It was lovely to meet the students within the charity committee, and hear how passionate they are about philanthropy, and we are very grateful for the school’s latest donation of £1,000.”

A CHAS spokesperson added: “We are very grateful to everyone at Lomond School for this very generous donation and their continuous support.

"We rely on the generosity of supporters to raise much needed funds to help us with our mission of reaching every single baby, child and young person in Scotland with a life-shortening condition.

“We currently support over 450 families through our hospices, expanding hospital services and growing CHAS at Home teams.

“We are committed to making sure that no matter how little time families have together, it is filled with as much happiness and fun as possible.

"But for every family we help, there is another that is struggling alone, and to be able to reach them all we simply need to raise more money.”
