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.
A quick hop across the road to St Joseph’s College and Alistair was presented with another generous cheque!
The next school on route was St Patrick’s primary in Troon. Others joined Alistair on this leg of the journey.
Father Martin Chambers, chaplain at St Andrew’s primary in Kilmarnock high 5’s his way through the amazing welcome the cyclists received. The school had worked very hard throughout Lent to raise a huge amount of money for SCIAF.
Alistair and others then cycled to Motherwell and dropped into St Bernadette’s primary and pupils joined the cycle for a little trip. The pupils then presented their Lenten fundraising to Alistair and Father Stephen Reilly.
St Ninian’s primary in Livingston took time to send off Alistair on the next leg of his journey while presenting their Lenten fundraising also.
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.
