More than 1000 local school children have enjoyed Christmas pantomimes online thanks to the generosity of Thurso Rotary.

Online pantomimes were financed by the club for seven local primary schools – Castletown, Crossroads, Halkirk, Miller Academy, Pennyland, Mount Pleasant and Reay.

Most of the schools enjoyed performances of Robin Hood last week, while Miller Academy pupils were set to see Oliver with a Christmas Twist or The McDougalls Christmas Party.

Club correspondent Paul Hagan said: "We are delighted to fund and provide our seven local primary schools with an online pantomime for their Christmas entertainment.

The panto was enjoyed by P6/7 pupils at Castletown Primary School.

"As normal seasonal entertainment will be severely curtailed with parties, shows or treats restricted for our schools, we have financed the online shows for around 1050 of our local children."

Mr Hagan added: "We haven't done this before and wanted just to try and bring a bit of Christmas cheer to all the pupils. They were able to see it on big screens and it gave a good atmosphere when watching with their classmates."

Pupils at Castletown were among those who enjoyed the panto and appreciated Thurso Rotary funding this festive activity for them.
