Pupils at Rothesay Primary School presented a donation of £1,000 to the children’s charity Childline at their assembly on Monday.

The money was raised at a sleepover held at the school last month and featured in the pages of The Buteman,.

The cheque was accepted on Childline’s behalf by Janine Bonner, the area co-ordinator with the Childline Schools Service, who told the pupils: “The money you’ve raised means a lot to us and to the children and young people we help. We couldn’t do what we do if it wasn’t for people like you raising money for us.”
