My name is Kevin Milliken and I'm a pupil at Trinity High School, Renfrew. The staff and pupils at Trinity High are so passionate about raising both awareness and money for SCIAF because everybody knows that the money raised will go directly to help those in need. That's what we do at Trinity, we help people in any way we can.
A day that we never forget is the SCIAFATHON which takes place in March every year.
This is a fun afternoon that everyone enjoys because everyone picks an activity that they want to do.
For some it might be football, for others it might be social dancing, but whatever we choose we have a great time!
We raise a huge amount by each year group setting a target and each pupil gives a £1 a week over five weeks as their personal sacrifice on top of their other sponsor money. We always meet our targets and we give this personal sacrifice because we can and because we care.
Trinity High School Renfrew is also in a partnership with other schools in Scotland through APD (The Association for People with Disabilities) and this is an organisation that SCIAF support. Over the past 12 years we have supported APD and we have had groups of pupils go to Bangalore, India and work with the people in the APD School and in the slums, needless to say this trip has always been very inspirational and successful.
