Some of our former pupils, parents and staff will remember Margaret McPake, Teacher & Deputy Head Teacher at Loretto for many years. Shortly after Margaret’s retirement she was sadly diagnosed with Alzheimers. Margaret has been in hospital permanently for the last 3 years and heartbreakingly for the family she no longer recognises them or is able to communicate with them. Her husband Tommy visits every day without fail but she is unaware he is there.
On 16th June Margaret’s daughter, Anne Gold, along with Margaret’s 3 granddaughters, Rachel, Ruth and Lucy (all former pupils) will be doing a sponsored walk across the Forth Road Bridge in fancy dress. They are raising funds for Alzheimer Scotland. Anne’s employer will match the funds they raise up to £500. If you would like to support the girls then please visit http://www.justgiving.com/Anne-Gold to make your donation.
Alternatively, donations can be handed into the school office.
Thank you for your support.
