Wellington Raises Over £43k for Alzheimer Scotland

Wellington School’s 6th Year Charity Cheque Presentation 2018

 

We are absolutely delighted to announce that under the stewardship of our Heads of School, Mitchell Wyllie, Emma Wishart and the rest of Senior 6, Wellington School has raised the astounding sum of £43,643 for Alzheimer Scotland!

To every person who donned an ostentatious costume for the Fun Run, paid £1 to not wear uniform on a non-uniform day, bought cake or candy from one of the stalls, came to the Christmas Craft Fair, purchased a WellingtonSchool calendar, jumped into the Firth of Clyde in the middle of winter (it took a while to thaw out, didn’t it S6?!), bought a programme for Les Mis or simply dropped money into a charity bucket at one of our events, THANK YOU!

To those people who undertook extraordinary challenges in the name of Alzheimer Scotland THANK YOU! Mr and Mrs Wyllie’s 10 marathons in 10 days, Mr Cartner’s 640 lengths (he calls himself a ‘mediocre’ swimmer?!), Mr Byers and Mia’s half marathon and Mrs Docherty’s drastic haircut (40cms!) raised tens of thousands of pounds and we are infinitely proud of their tenacity and selflessness. THANK YOU to every person who sponsored any of these causes.

We are proud to support a good cause every year and we are delighted that Alzheimer Scotland is the worthy beneficiary this year. Mitchell, Emma and S6 have worked tirelessly to fundraise so it was with a sense of well-deserved satisfaction that they presented Jenni McKeand (Dementia Advisor) and Amy McLaughlin (Fundraising Manager) with our – quite literally – massive cheque at a special presentation ceremony yesterday.

Well done Wellington!
