Shimna raises funds to help asylum seekers

Shimna Amnesty International members donated £200 to Home Start this week to support local asylum seeker families.

The students organised a raffle raising money to provide newly arrived children with essential school supplies and art materials.

"These students have been Amnesty members since year 8 and are leaving school shortly," says Shimna teacher Mairi McCurdy. "They will, without doubt, be continuing their activism and bringing positive change wherever they go."
