THE Early Years Class at St Bridget’s Primary School last week held a Scottish ‘Tae & Toast’ event to raise money for Poppy Scotland.

Former pupil Paul Sproat played the bagpipes for guests on arrival and for the children entering the stage.

David from Poppy Scotland Kilmarnock was in attendance and he was thrilled with the event. He said he couldn’t believe that the children were only three and four years old.

The children sang a selection of Scottish and Gaelic songs, recited Scots poetry and performed some ceilidh dancing.

Tea and toast was enjoyed by all and some parents even joined in with a Scottish quiz.

The class run a weekly parent’s crochet group who decided to make poppies to sell. They made 100 crocheted poppies and every single one sold.

The local shop Dunning’s and the Co-Op donated all the prizes for the raffle. A huge thank you from the school goes to them for their support.

A fantastic £188 has now been raised.
