Laxford House Present Cheque to Members of Assynt Mountain Rescue

Laxford House Present Cheque to Members of Assynt Mountain Rescue

The school recently participated in the Wood Trust Foundation’s Youth and Philanthropy Initiative.  Each of the 3 school houses selected a charity which supports people in the high school catchment area.  The pupils investigated their charity and made presentations before a judging panel.  The successful group was Laxford House and their chosen charity was Assynt Mountain Rescue.

Laxford House pupils presented a cheque for £3,000 to members of Assynt Mountain Rescue.  This is a small organisation who will benefit enormously from this money.

If you want to know more about the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative, have a look at their website:  http://goypi.org/

We will be able to participate in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative for at least 3 more years so the School Houses will have another opportunity to get involved with charities that benefit local people.
