Grand total for Kirkcudbright prefects

The outgoing Prefects team at Kirkcudbright Academy have enjoyed a really successful fundraising year. They raised a very impressive £4600 for their main charity, Cancer Research Kids and Teens UK. Additionally they were challenged to work alongside the Rotary Club of Kirkcudbright to raise money towards a microfinance project operated by the charity ‘Opportunity International’. The Rotary Club challenged the students to raise £250 which they would then match. Microfinance provides financial services for poor and low-income clients through small loans, savings, money transfer and insurance. Improving access to such services allows poor and low-income people to finance income-generating activities, build assets, stabilise consumption and protect against risks. Pictured is outgoing Head Girl, Isabelle Newhouse, presenting a cheque for £500 to Kirkcudbright Youth Service Convenor Paul Tebay and fellow Rotarian John Frew and the outgoing prefect team.
