Our first recruits have signed up to help their local community as members of our Jam Jar Army.
This year’s good cause campaign is collecting loose change and putting it into major community events.
And Kinneil Primary School in Bo’ness was the first group to sign up and offer their support.
Cameron McDermott (11), Louise Kennedy (10), Halle Brown (11), Courtney Sneddon (11), Michelle Baillie (11), Robbie Love (10), Ellie Marshall (10), Euan Middleton (11) are among the first volunteers, pictured above.
Headteacher Paul Fleming said: ‘‘Kinneil Primary School has a proud history of supporting good causes – something which we continue to do in these tough economic times. Last year we were delighted to raise well over £2000 for various charities – both local and national. This ‘Jam Jar Army’ campaign is a very creative and easy way to support a good cause and I look forward to Kinneil contributing to what I’m sure will be a successful campaign.”
The money raised will be split between the Bo’ness Fair, Linlithgow Marches, Linlithgow Gala Day and the Ferry Fair, the hugely popular annual community events .
