GLASGOW school pupils have benefitted from toy donations lovingly chosen by fellow children.

Youngsters from Pollokshields Primary joined Shawlands and Lorne Street to gather gifts as part of the Glasgow Times Bank on Us appeal to help ensure no child goes without this Christmas.

Enchanted Forest Nursery in Robroyston also offered their support by filling our special Bank on Us toy appeal bags with gifts.

Ahead of the campaign, the Glasgow Times team contacted schools across Glasgow City Council in the hopes of encouraging pupils to join our plea.

However, not every school was able to get involved, with two requesting to join the donation list instead.

Yesterday, the toys raised by the kind-hearted children were donated to other schools in need.

Riverside Primary in Govan and St Catherine’s Primary in Barmulloch received bags of gifts to give out to its pupils ahead of the December 25.

Councillor Chris Cunningham, city convener for education, skills and early years for Glasgow City Council, said: “This year has been a challenging one in many different ways for so many of us.

“It’s heartening to hear about our schools stepping up and donating gifts for the Glasgow Times toy appeal but not a surprise as I know how generous our communities are.

“Especially when some of our families are experiencing hardships themselves so will also be on the receiving end of this wonderful appeal.

“People truly make Glasgow!”

Staff from Riverside Primary said they were “delighted” to receive the donation as they hurriedly prepare to ensure some of the school’s most vulnerable pupils are gifted with toys before schools close for the holidays next week.

Meanwhile, St Catherine’s workers described the delivery as “fantastic”.

The final deliveries will take place this week to toy banks, schools and charities who will distribute toys to families in need.

As previously reported, more than £10,000 has been spent on gifts from our partners A1 Toys with thousands of children expected to benefit from the Bank on Us campaign.
