PUPILS at Muiredge Primary School in Uddingston hit the right note when they raised £550 by holding a charity concert to support the work of Glasgow City Mission.

It was held at Park United Free Church and featured over 70 Muiredge pupils.

The audience were asked to make a donation at the door and/or give non-perishable food such as tinned food, tea, coffee and sugar.

A total of £550 was raised - and so many donations were made that a van had to be sent to collect the food the following day.

Following the concert, a short, extremely moving presentation on the work done by the City Mission was given. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided by the church at the end of the evening.
