Union Welcomes Stirling Primary School to Royal Highland Show

NFU Scotland’s Centenary Trust helps to fund visit to Show for P3 pupils

NFU Scotland welcomed 28 children from Borestone Primary School to the Royal Highland Show on June 19.

The school received a grant from NFU Scotland’s Centenary Trust of £180 to fund a bus to allow them to attend the Show.

Projects across the country have now benefited from nearly £190,000 of funds from the Trust.

Established in the Union’s centenary year, the objectives of the Trust were to encourage as many children as possible to learn more about where their food and drink comes from and to visit a farm in 2013; to educate farmers, their employees and their children on health and safety in the countryside, with a special emphasis on children’s safety; and to assist in bringing forward a meaningful apprentice programme that supports farmers and their employees.

George Lawrie, Treasurer of the Centenary Trust said: “We are particularly pleased to welcome the pupils from Borestone Primary School near Stirling to the Show.

“This is the first visit to the show for most of these youngsters and it will be a great opportunity for them to learn about farming and the rural environment and meet those involved, and more importantly have fun whilst doing so.

“It’s great to see the money going to good use and we hope the children will learn something on the day and come back in future.”
