Pedal for Scotland Glasgow to Edinburgh

105%Thanks to your amazing generosity we’ve met out target to raise £1000 for the school! On behalf of everyone who’s cycling from Glasgow to Edinburgh to raise those funds – THANK YOU.

With a week to go we would like to keep going and smash that target because every donation (small or large) helps and goes to the school to help them do more.

If you have not already done so, please can you donate at

The ceremony was an event showcasing talent from S4-S6 from across the city’s secondary schools. The judges were looking for students who could demonstrate the potential to make a career in art, and who showed artistic quality, maturity and confidence in their medium.
