St Fergus pupils presented a cheque to Dianne Lawson of international development charity 'JAM' recently.

Pupils came to school wearing their pyjamas and each donated £1 to JAM to do so.

JAM - which stands for Joint Aid Management - is a charity which has been expanding its expertise in relief and sustainable development since 1984.

The pupils first heard about JAM when Dianne Lawson visited the school and spoke about a recent trip to support work with nursery children in Africa.

A total of £506.02 was raised through a variety of fun activities including football, make-up and nails, selling cakes and toast with jam, guess the birthday, guess the flavour of jam, as well as a book and toy sale.

The cheque was presented by Pupil Council members at a school assembly recently.

Commenting, Head Teacher Claire Grugeon said: “We’re very proud of the hard work our pupils have done.”

Pictured presenting the cheque are: Jack McLean, Dianne Lawson, Luke Grugeon, Maren Mowatt and Heidi Morrison.
