Glasgow pupils raise funds for seafarers
06th June 2017
Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) benefited from the generosity of St Mungo’s Primary School in Townhead, Glasgow as pupils and staff rallied round to raise funds for the seafaring charity.

Children took part in a sponsored walk round the Forth and Clyde Canal and made cupcakes which they sold around the various classes within the school.
AoS had initially visited the school to give a presentation on their work back in late February, before returning to collect a cheque for £150.
Clydeport port chaplain, Joe O’Donnell, who is Deacon at nearby St Mungo’s Church, joined National Development Officer Euan McArthur to address their young supporters once more.
Deacon Joe travelled from Troon to share a few stories with the children as well as answer some of their wide-ranging questions as part of their Monday afternoon Assembly.
Principal Teacher, Catriona Ward, said; "We are delighted to help Apostleship of the Sea. The children showed great enthusiasm in raising money which can hopefully help this special charity."
Euan said, "We offer our sincere thanks to everyone associated with St Mungo’s Primary School. The pupils seemed to enjoyed our visit when they heard all about our work and they have been so generous with their time and efforts."
