Charleston Academy Pupils have been busy raising money for a new and unique partnership with the locally based charity Scottish Exotic Animal Rescue at Cantraybridge. The pupils raised over £400 to support the work of the charity through a sponsored walk and will be participating in future fundraising events.
In return Nick Martin and his vast array of animals work with pupils to provide unique learning opportunities. Students also visit the rescue centre regularly where they are developing skills for work and the wider world whilst working with the animals. It has been a very unique, successful and productive partnership that Charleston Academy and Scottish Exotic Animal Rescue are keen to develop.
