St Andrews Pr Kilmarnock 007

SCIAF’s director, Alistair, continued his 1000 mile cycle around Scotland to meet our supporters. He dropped into a few schools on route and you can see some of the highlights below.



Primary 6 pupils at St Andrew’s primary in Dumfries enjoyed an active workshop on climate change before welcoming and presenting a cheque to Alistair.

Thanks to all the schools that welcomed Alistair on his pilgrimage. We appreciate all you do for SCIAF by fundraising but also in learning about important issues like climate change and how we can make a difference to our brothers and sisters in the developing world.
