Kids from Carrongrange School in Falkirk managed to raise £620 for Five Sisters Zoo in West Lothian with support from Hub East Central Scotland and Ogilvie Construction.
The pupils arranged a coffee morning event which raised £120 and hub ECS and Ogilvie, who are constructing the new Carrongrange school building, each donated £250 to support the initiative.
The new school building is due to open soon and will offer 190 pupils a state of the art learning environment.
Five Sisters Zoo is non-profit enterprise with a collection of over 180 different species of mammals birds and reptiles. A large part of the zoo’s focus is to provide a home for three bears and four lions who were rescued from lives performing in travelling circuses.
Gary Bushnell, Chief Executive, hub East Central Scotland said:
“We are delighted to support the pupils at the school in their efforts to raise money for the zoo and look forward to presenting them with a fantastic new school building in the near future”
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction added:
“We work hard to support local communities on all of our projects and it was a pleasure to donate to the campaign organised by the children at Carrongrange. We have constructed a high-quality building which will meet their specific needs for the future.”
