School collects for Togs

Pupils and staff from across the High School of Dundee have been donating to a collection for a very good cause.

Togs is a charity that provides clothing and equipment for young people in families in poverty in Dundee. To support the organisation’s work, members of the school community have been invited to donate items listed in Togs’ ‘Five to Thrive’ list, such as appropriate seasonal clothing, well-fitting shoes, comfortable bedding and toys for cognitive and physical development.

With the volume of donations growing by the day, Form 6 volunteers Robyn Landsburgh, Katie MacDougall and Ruby Hutton have been busy sorting packages of clothes for distribution.

To make the process safe, the School has been operating several contactless collection points and donated items are quarantined for 72 hours before being taken to Togs where they are quarantined for a further 72 hours.

Collection points are located in the nursery, Margaret Harris Building, the Royal Exchange Building, and Bonar House and donations can be made right up until the end of term tomorrow.

It’s been a busy end of term for fundraising with the collection for Togs, sales of candy canes for the British Heart Foundation and facemasks for Children 1st, and a colourful Sparkle Day in aid of Dundee Bairns and the British Heart Foundation.

Well done to everyone involved!
