Miss Moira Gordon, from Westhill & District Rotary Club, give a talk to the children at Dunecht Primary about project which helps poor families to get to school in countries such as Malawi and Liberia.

The Backpack project helps families who cannot afford to buy basic things like pencils and notebooks, or even suitable clothes to wear to school, meaning children can miss out on an education.

Pupils at Dunecht donated items to fill backpacks which Miss Gordon collected this week.

The school will continue to collect items to fill more backpacks for this worthwhile cause which is run in conjunction with Mary’s Meals.
