The Apostleship of the Sea was delighted to return to Ss Peter and Paul’s Primary School, Dundee, where they were humble recipients of a £111 cheque. Bishop Stephen is the charity’s Bishop Promoter for Scotland, and he was delighted to learn the news that the children had raised such a generous amount through the sale of raffle tickets in recent weeks throughout the various years.
Evie Dempster, of Primary 5, was the winner of a signed Dundee United football which the pupils had eagerly competed to win.
Denise Derby, Acting Head Teacher, said: “We are very happy to support this excellent charity. As they approach their centenary in 2020, we should keep the importance of seafarers in our prayers remember them our own everyday lives. It’s always nice to finish up on such a high ahead of our two-week Easter break.”
Euan McArthur, Scottish Development Officer, expressed his sincere thanks for the school’s on-going support for AoS. He said: “We are once more very appreciative of everything Ss Peter and Paul does to help our charity and it’s great to know we have a future generation of supporters.”
