A group of sixth year students at Taylor High School will host a coffee morning on Sunday (November 29) as part of their work with the Caritas award.

The event, in aid of St Andrew’s Hospice, will be held after 9.30am Mass at St Mary’s Church in the chapel hall.

All are welcome to attend the coffee morning, and donations of home baking would be appreciated.

The Caritas award was introduced by the Bishops Conference of Scotland after Pope Benedict XVI visited Scotland.

It aims to get young people in their last year of school involved in religious activities within their school and church community.

To complete the award, the Taylor High group is required to do 20 hours of activities in school, and 20 hours outside of school.

As well as organising the coffee morning, the students have been taking part in a range of other activities

including training new altar servers, holding a charity football match and hosting a ‘lip sync battle’.
