Primary pupils raise funds for crocus bulbs initiative

Dunnottar's Primary 2 class decided to use the crocus kits as an enterprise project. They hosted a community cafe to their parents and friends, where the crocuses pots, decorated by the children took centre stage, menus, leaflets and info posters were displayed which had been researched and designed by the pupils. They used the cafe to raise awareness but also to raise money and they decided to donate all the proceeds, �104, to the Rotary End Polio Now campaign. The crocus pots were sent home with the children/parents and they reported back to their class on their progress
