‘Graduates’ from a Glenrothes supermarket celebrated raising over £12,000 for a special schools initiative by hosting an in-store graduation.

Staff at Morrisons in Glenrothes marked the end of a three-year campaign in conjunction with Save the Children to transform the lives of thousands of children in the communities where the supermarket works.

The money raised - a whopping £12,019 - will go towards the Families and Schools Together (FAST) programme.

FAST aims to bring families, schools and communities together to build stronger bonds within the community and make sure that children get the support they need to do well at school.

The fund also goes towards helping overseas emergency appeals.

George Johnstone, store manager at Glenrothes, said: “We are very proud to have contributed to Morrisons most successful charity partnership ever with Save the Children.

“We have been committed to fundraising knowing our efforts have helped some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children”.

The efforts of the Glenrothes staff have helped raise over £7 million nationally since the campaign was launched in April, 2011.
