CAULDEEN Primary recently hosted a fun day to raise money for Maisie Fraser, a former pupil with a rare form of liver cancer.
Teachers and pupils wanted to help the 18-year-old with funds towards completing her ‘bucket list’ of things to do.
The appeal was launched in April, with Maisie keen to realise a number of goals before she loses her fight to cancer.
Teacher Emma Jack organised a packed fun day at the school, with a ramge of activities including a soak the P7s, where seven pupils volunteered to have wet sponges thrown at them in return for donations. There was also a bake sale and other game stalls.
Ms Jack said: “Together we managed to raise a total of £892 for Maisie, which is absolutely incredible! This fundraiser meant a lot to staff and pupils as Maisie is a very special part of Cauldeen, being an ex-pupil of ours.”
Maisie said: “What an incredible amount raised guys! I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
Her uncle, Shaun Smith, is currently training for the Three Peaks Challenge as a fundraiser too.
He said: “We are doing it to help raise funds for her to live the best life that she can or just treat herself.”
