S1 pupils at Breadalbane Academy in Aberfeldy have chosen to support four charities, by using their Integrated Task lessons to organise and run the second annual Aberfeldy Scarecrow Festival.

The weekend began on Friday 20th May with a Barn Dance, held at the Community Campus in Aberfeldy, followed by the second annual Scarecrow Festival.

“Lots of businesses in Aberfeldy participated, by dressing up the scarecrows and displaying them outside their premises,” said Mark Bridgeman from Bring Back The Smile To Nepal, “the public were then asked to vote to find the winner.”

“The S1 pupils organised the entire event and chose the charities they wanted to support”, continued Mark, “Bring Back The Smile To Nepal were thrilled to be picked chosen by the children, as a charity they wanted to support. We can’t thank them enough.”

In addition the pupils were raising funds for Guide Dogs For The Blind, Perthshire Abandoned Dogs Society ( PADS ) and Cancer Research UK.

The winner and the final amount raised will be announced as soon as possible.

If you would like to help continue the work done by the S1 pupils, donations can still be made at Breadalbane Community Campus, Aberfeldy. Or further details on how you can support any of these charities can be found on their websites:
