Eigg Primary raised £2,788.55* money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which is in Glasgow in a hospital called the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre. We did this before the summer holidays, but in August Audrey from the Teenage Cancer Trust came to visit us. She came to say thank you for all your help with the raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Audrey came to give us gifts from Dobbies, a garden centre in Glasgow. She came to the island to see what it’s like living here and to see the puffins that she thought lived here. She brought a message from London to say thank you and that they hope the London gang can come up to Eigg to see the puffins. So we sent a video back saying thank YOU London for the message. PS there are no puffins, but there are whales.
We showed her around the school garden and polytunnel. We showed her around the classroom and she had lunch with us. We loved the gifts from Dobbies and right this very minute we are using them in our school garden.
Here’s our video to the London Teenage Cancer gang.
If you’d like to make a donation to the Teenage Cancer Trust too, you can do so on our fundraising page here.
