Busy young bakers raise funds for charity

Kilgraston pupils raise £161 for Hurricane Relief Fund


Taking inspiration from Head of Religious Education Stephen Johnston’s lesson on the Kingdom of God, and in particular, the message about ‘action in the world’, enterprising Junior Years pupils have raised an impressive £161 from a break-time bake sale for the Relief Fund for Hurricane Dorian.

“Our Head of Junior Years, Grace R, came up with the idea of a bake sale to help those who had lost everything,” commented Mr Johnston, “after hearing the words from the bible, about the hidden power of the small seed, the girls were inspired to take action.”

The devastating cyclone recently ripped through the Bahamas and East Coast America, causing mass devastation and leaving many thousands homeless.

Jesus’ teaching on the Kingdom of God, demonstrated that he wanted people to show love, justice and goodness to each other and build a more caring society.  “I asked the girls to think of how they could show compassion and thoughtfulness to others having heard this lesson,” said Mr Johnston, “they responded with this wonderful idea, baking the cakes, advertising and marketing the sale. I am very proud of them all,” he concluded.
