A group of Glasgow kindergarten pupils have shown that being young doesn’t mean you can’t raise a big amount for charity.
Children from Balmore Kindergarten have raised more than £1,100 for the STV Children’s Appeal, which helps young people across the country affected by poverty.
The class of three to five-year-olds, know as the penguins, were asked to were asked to dress up as what they want to be when they are older and take part in a sponsored walk.
The ‘March of the Penguins’, which was just over one mile, saw 15 children dressing up as doctors, nurses, firemen, race drivers, princesses and even Her Royal Highness, The Queen.
Balmore Kindergarten has supported STV’s Children’s Appeal for a number of years, holding several fundraisers including breakfast mornings and a zipline over the Clyde.
Laura Taylor, head of learning at Balmore Kindergarten, said: “We had such a fantastic day with our March of the Penguins walk. Even though it was wet and windy, we had a great time walking around our local community, teaching the class about those less fortunate than themselves and raising money for a very important cause.”
