Class Homework Pays Off For Foundation

A big thank you goes to the pupils of Lower 4 at the Albyn School in Aberdeen, after their fundraiser for the Cystinosis Foundation UK raised £400!

A home work assignment about newspapers turned into a fundraiser when pupil Lenny Rebeix wrote about Cystinotic Lena Forsyth, from Mintlaw near Aberdeen, after seeing an article about her in the national press. The pupils, inspired by the article, chose to come to school on the last day of term in something other than school uniform, in exchange for a donation to the Cystinosis Foundation UK, and also wearing a hat.

The cheque was presented to the Foundation’s chairperson Roy Forsyth, who is also Lena’s father. Head of the Lower School, Mrs Thomson, said "I am very proud of all of our pupils and our continued commitment to support charitable causes."

You can read more about the story at Albyn School’s website.
