One thousand school pupils have taken part in a giant conga dance to raise money for disadvantaged children.

The youngsters danced round the pitch of Hampden Stadium in Glasgow on Friday.

The event was organised by Cathcart Old Church of Scotland minister Rev Neil Galbraith, founder of aid charity Glasgow the Caring City, in partnership with the Scottish Government and the St Andrew's Day Holiday Committee.

After the conga, the children were taken through a basic heart start first aid course using more than 100 mannequins.

Mr Galbraith said: "This is a fun-filled, educational and charitable event that focuses on saving lives and improving the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in our society.

"The second annual Hampden Conga shows the far-reaching concern Glasgow the Caring City and the Church of Scotland has for community social responsibility, welfare and child poverty."

Mr Galbraith said the initiative last year - the first event ever held - put more than £10,000 into the hands of local schools.
