Newburgh Mathers School has recently completed a successful collection for the Backpack Project for the charity Mary’s Meals.

The campaign was organised by the school RotaKids group and pupils in all classes generously donated backpacks, stationery and other essential items to be included in the backpacks.

In total the children collected 40 backpacks which will be distributed by the charity to those in need in Africa.

The children have been grateful for the help of Mr Fred Watson from the Ellon Rotary for his advice and support with the collection.

Pupils from the Rotakids group are pictured above with some of the backpacks collected.
