A North-east school group handed over a £500 boost to a local charity recently.

Charlie House Appeal received the cheque from the Rotakids group based at Cultercullen Primary School.

The primary 4 to 7 pupils in the club raised the funds by participating in business enterprise schemes as part of their maths lessons about money.

The Director of Fundraising for Charlie House, Derek Hart, collected the cheque on behalf of the charity at a presentation held at the school last Friday.

Pupils organised business projects which saw them make and sell products.

A range of schemes were organised by the children with some projects including making cards and jewellery, washing cars, to selling tomato and chili plants.

One project saw pupils make chocolate krispie cakes before going on to sale them, while other groups sold sweet heart magnets, pom pom animals and clay plaques, handy holders as well as book marks.

The project that took in the most income in the end were awarded a prize.

The ‘Don’t make just eat’ chocolate krispies was crowned the winning project.

Derek Hart said: “Charlie House is delighted that Cultercullen Primary School Rotakids chose them to benefit from their amazing business fundraising activities.

“The children have shown great entrepreneurial flair at such an early age which augurs well for the future.”
