Pupils at Rothesay Primary School have raised more than £250 for Yorkhill Hospital as a result of a ‘Kiltwalk’ around the school grounds.

The event, involving all the school’s primary and pre-5 pupils, took place on March 21 and saw each class in turn walk around the whole of the Rothesay Joint Campus grounds, covering a total of 1,035 metres and raising £255.04 so far.

More will be added to the final total at a charity football match between pupils and staff at neighbouring Rothesay Academy on Tuesday, April 1.

The walk was organised by pupils in the S4 XL group at the Academy to help three-year-old Hannah Erskine, who will take part in a ‘Wee Kiltwalk’ at Loch Lomond on April 27.

Hannah, whose dad William teaches in the Academy’s food, design and technology department, received life-saving treatment at Yorkhill when she was born with the main arteries in her heart the wrong way round - and has since gone on to make a full recovery.
