Please Help us by Donating Items for The Clydesdale Food Bank

posted 29 Oct 2013, 09:09 by Braidwood Primary Web

This term the Pupil Council are helping The Clydesdale Food Bank set up by the Church of Scotland in Carluke, in co-operation with the New Beginning Project. The aim of this project is to collect food and household items to help those in food poverty. Schools in Carluke have been asked to participate in bringing food into school to make up food banks.
We have decided to help people in our Community by asking pupils to bring in some essential items. This is entirely voluntary but if you can bring any spare or unwanted items from their list then that would be greatly appreciated.
We have divided up the household pack between our seven classes. If you have any of the following items, please bring them to school. There will be a food bank box in each class for all items. The Pupil Council will then make up the packages to be delivered to Clydesdale Food Bank.
Food Lists:
Primary 1 - Tea Bags, Soap, Jam/Marmalade, Kitchen Rolls, Packet of Savoury Rice, Dry Pasta and Rice.
Primary 2 - Coffee, Shampoo, Cooking Oil, Tissues, Tinned Vegetables and Tinned Fruit.
Primary 3 - Sugar, Cleaning Cloths, Diluting Juice, Soup, Tinned Pasta, Jar of Sauce to go with Rice and Biscuits.
Primary 4 - Ketchup, Scourers, Washing up liquids, Cup a Soup, Tinned/Dried Potatoes, Jar of Pasta Sauce and Toothbrush.
Primary 5 - Brown Sauce, Toothpaste, Noodles, Washing Powder, Tinned Tomatoes, Cereal and Face Cloth.
Primary 6 - Tinned Beans, Tin Opener, Tinned Fish, All Purpose Cleaner/Wipes and Porridge.
Primary 7 - Toilet Rolls, Salt, Pepper, Bleach, Packet Pasta in Sauce and Tinned Meats.
The Pupil Council would like to thank you for any donations with this project.

Pupil Council Bring and Buy Sale

posted 7 Feb 2013, 04:44 by Braidwood Primary Web

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:
  1. A raffle – we sold Raffle Tickets to all classes during our lunchtime.
  2.  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.
