Pupils from Wick High School donated charity cash totalling over £300 towards buying gifts for the local elderly and vulnerable people.

The S1-S6 youngsters held a lockdown photography competition earlier this year and raised a sizeable sum that they donated to Wick Tesco's Tree of Kindness campaign.

The S1-6 pupils donated a cheque for £315 after raising money from a calendar sale.

Tesco Wick community champion Karen Center said: "They had so many beautiful photographs they decided to make a 2021 calendar to raise money for a local charity.

"On seeing our Tree of Kindness they decided to donate all the proceeds of £313 to buy gifts for the elderly and vulnerable.

Karen said that the staff at Wick Tesco staff "were overwhelmed with their kindness and how they thought of the elderly within our community".

Some of the presents bought with the money donated by Wick High School pupils.
