Special report just in from the Poppy Girls at Killermont Primary School!

6th December 2016

The Poppyscotland Learning Team were lucky enough this morning to be sent through a short report with a couple of photos about the P6 ‘poppy girls’ at Killermont Primary School from their headteacher Elspeth Smith. The girls, with the help of their parents and teachers, were able to raise an extremely enterprising £245 for Poppyscotland. Great work girls! Have a read about their fundraising below in their own words…

‘Poppy Girls Report

Our names are Ella, Amanda, Elise, Rachel and Amy.

We decided to make and sell handmade felt poppies to raise money for poppy Scotland. Last year we approached our teacher with the idea and she thought it was a great idea and we were immediately sent to our head mistress Miss Smith to report on the main points of our plan! Then we discussed our background knowledge and brought it all together as a team Amanda’s mum kindly purchased our needed materials. Then showed us how to make them then we then took it to the next step to decorate them with glitter, buttons and googly eyes! These sold extremely quickly so that is why we thought to continue this memorable time and we raised an outstanding £245! We hope this inspires young designers to raise money for good causes and would like to make a special thank you to Mrs Mcinnes (Amanda’s mum) and Miss Smith for helping us bring our ideas together!

Thank You!’

On Friday 2nd December our Poppyscotland Regional Fundraiser (West) Simon Sherries visited Killermont Primary and received the cheque from the girls. We had the moment captured above.

Well done Poppy Girls! We are proud of all of you. See you next year? 😉
