In Carrowdore Primary School, our pupils have made a great start to our Charity Collection this year.  Last year, we raised the grand total of £1700.00 and were able to sponsor a child in Mali through "Plan International" and 2 children in Haiti through the charity "OMS."   The Blythswood Shoebox Appeal was once again very successful despite the recession. We were able to send sixty-two shoe boxes this year and the Blythswood representatives who came to collect them were absolutely delighted. . A huge THANK YOU also for your very generous donations to our appeal for the victims of the Philippines disaster. Our little school raised a fantastic £260.00, which is already in the post to PLAN International, who are co ordinating a major relief operation.

Other charities we also support are:
