Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal 2019

Please support your child to support the Reverse Advent Calendar appeal.   We are asking young people to bring in items to be donated to our local Food bank here in the North of the City.  The poster below details items which can be donated.

Aberdeen is a wonderful city to lie and work in but since the downturn in the oil industry unepmployment has risen as 70 000 jobs in oil and oil related areas have disappeared.  We are encouraging our young people to think of others at this time of year.  Maybe they can give up fizzy drinks for the week and use the money to buy an item each day to donate.  Maybe as a family you can discuss other ways that you could support the appeal.  Last year 1600 items were donated to the Trussell Trust this year our target is to donate 2000.

McMillan Coffee Morning

Following on from the great success of the BODA Bake-off [and a short break from all the sweet treats!] the staff took part for the second year running in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. This is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event and once again staff pulled out all the stops to produce a fantastic spread for our morning break.
We raised a fabulous £281.65, over £40 more than last year, and added to the £140 already raised for Macmillan as part of the BODA Bake-off we have been able to donate £421.65 to this very worthwhile charity.
