St Andrews Hospice Ambassadors

S6 Volunteers Receive Hospice Award.

Coatbridge High School is involved in the S6 Ambassador Initiative with St Andrews Hospice. This year 15 S6 pupils volunteered as Ambassadors for the Hospice. This involved them organising events in school to raise money for the Hospice as well as raise the profile of the Hospice in the local community. Mrs Hunter, the schools Hospice event co-ordinator said, 'This is the 4th year Coatbridge High School have taken part in the Ambassador Programme and our young people have excelled in their volunteer work. They have shown initiative in planning, organising and taking part in events throughout the year, such as the 6K Run, Christmas Fayre and even a charity night in a local nightclub. The school is very proud of their comittment and they are a credit to both the school and their parents.'
