Stevenson Congratulate's Local School's Charity Haul

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has congratulated pupils at Banff Academy who along with five other North East schools raised a total of £22,000 through the Jasmine Charity Challenge.

The Jasmine Charity Challenge is a private sector funded initiative that challenges secondary school student teams from the North East to choose a charity and identify enterprising ways to raise a minimum of £1000. The Jasmine Group also gives a £250 donation to each school.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I would like to congratulate pupils at Banff Academy for their achievement in raising so much money for charity. I am delighted that they have used their creativity and ingenuity over the past 12 months to raise funds for good causes, and I hope this is something that they continue to do for the rest of their lives.”

The youngsters attended the finale event of the Jasmine Group initiative at Cineworld in Union Square in Aberdeen. An individual from each school presented the results of their year-long fundraising campaign, while each participant was given a pupil of excellence award to mark their contribution throughout the past 12 months.

Danny Cowie, group managing director of the Jasmine Holdings Group, added:

“The pupils have shown fantastic dedication to the Jasmine Charity Challenge over the past 12 months and their enthusiasm has been great to see.

“They have all contributed great ideas to raise money and been real team players. This has also been a chance to introduce them to enterprise, and help them see what they can achieve with determination and hard work. The pupils have all learnt a lot about the valuable links that exist between the classroom and the workplace, which has been great to see.”
