Charity recognises fund raising effort by Crieff High School pupils
Canine Concern Scotland Trust presented awards to Crieff High School S2 pupils as a thank you for their magnificent effort in raising £3000 for the charity.
This award was made possible by the pupil’s efforts participating in the YPI (Youth and Philanthropy Initiative). The pupils had to present a case to the panel of judges why their chosen charity should win the £3000.The team of S2 pupils consisting of REBECCA HARDMAN CARTER, JAKE DOY, DAISY JONES and JAMIE PENKER fought off some very stiff competition and convinced the judges how worthwhile the work of the charity was and the benefits it brought to people in the Crieff area. They were helped in their presentation by Rev. Richard Tuckley, Therapet volunteer from Crieff and his Therapet Barney
Canine Concern Scotland Trust provides a Therapet pet visiting service to people in care, pet visits to schools and visits to various different types of establishments throughout Scotland. The £3000 will be used to increase awareness of the Therapet service in Crieff and surrounding area and as a result will be able to expand the service to many more service users.
The team were presented with their awards at the annual meeting of the Trustees and Area Representatives held in the Salutation Hotel Perth on Saturday 14th June. Trustee Dr Valerie Marrian presented the awards and thanked the pupils for their tremendous effort on behalf of the charity.
