The Pupil Council along with the help of Primary Seven, organised a Fundraiser before the Christmas Holidays. We were raising money for Demas, who lives in Uganda, Africa. Braidwood Primary School sponsor him to help him get the education that he needs. We did two things:
- A raffle – we sold Raffle Tickets to all classes during our lunchtime.
- We organised a Bring and Buy sale for all classes. It was a lot of hard work but we made it and we put all of our effort in to making this work. We had various stalls with books, toys, games, jigsaws etc. We had about 5 or 6 people on each stall and it was really good fun selling the items. We were really pleased that we raised over £300 in one day.
