Mini Pots of Care- fundraising for Marie Curie

Elphinstone took part in a Mini Pots of Care fundraising activity for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Back in November, the P6/7 pupils buddied with the rest of the school to hold a planting and learning morning. Each pupil planted a couple of daffodil bulbs into a wee pot of soil and placed it in a sheltered place in our school grounds. IMG_5721 IMG_5722 IMG_5723

Now in March, our bulbs have grown and showing buds and daffodil flowers….just in time for our fundraising Yellow day on Wednesday 1st April.  


The nursery and P1-7 children have taken home their decorated pots together with a personal envelope for donations for Marie Curie. Over the years, ‘Mini Pots of Care‘ activity has raised over £3.8million- that’s a lot of daffodil pots and enough money to  provide nursing care for terminally ill in their own homes. Thank you for your donations and for your support in our forthcoming Yellow Day.
