Berwickshire High School pupils recently held a special Charity Disco in aid of the Sick Children’s Hospital in Edinburgh.

Julie Cockburn, Joanna Laidlaw, Ellie Drummond and Erin-Jane Lauderm all second year pupils pupils at the school, organised and ran the disco themselves.

The girls told The Berwickshire News: “We organised the whole event within two and a half weeks, with a little help. We then decided on a date and agreed on March 1.

“A lot of time and effort went into the planning of the disco but it was all worthwhile in the end because the disco was a great success. The disco was held for first and second year in the assembly hall at the Berwickshire High School from 7pm till 9.30pm.

“Tickets were sold at £3 each and were sold by us at lunch and break.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to the DJ, Donald Moffat, for donating his time to DJ at our disco. We raised the amazing sum £277.46.

“We travelled up to the Sick Kids Friends Foundation in Edinburgh and took the big cheque with us. We met Rachel who works for the Friends Foundation and presented her with the cheque.

“The money was donated to the gastroenterology department at the hospital. A huge thank you to all who helped in any way with the disco and we hope all enjoyed it.”
