Our Fundraising Legacy From 2016/17

Wellington Pupils take a look at their fundraising legacy from 2016/17…

Wellington pupils from P6 to S6 jumped at the invite to see the new Rehabilitation Kitchen which has been installed at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. Thanks to the collective efforts of Wellington pupils, friends and family this new state-of-the-art kitchen will assist staff from Occupational Health, Dietetics and Psychology as they work with children and young people during their stay in hospital. The pupils were greeted to a warm welcome and a tour of the hospital from Lara McDonald, Community Campaigns Fundraiser at GCHC. There was even talk of a plaque being installed in the kitchen in order that everyone is made aware of Wellington’s contribution to making this project happen – watch this space!
Mr Byers, Head of Senior Years, took the pupils on the visit and was delighted by what he saw: “It was really inspiring to see such a tangible result of the pupils’ fundraising activities and I am delighted that Lara was kind enough to invite us for a tour of this fabulous new kitchen. I wish them many years of use and it is really pleasing that our donation will have a lasting legacy at the hospital”.
