Have a cow, man! Pupils give a moo-ving donation!

THE milk of human kindness is certainly flowing at one local school, where generous pupils have raised £900 to buy a cow to help a family in Rwanda.

The children learned about the suffering in the country through a project on Africa and from the previous school chaplain, David McAdam, who is involved with the charity Comfort Rwanda.

The charity was set up in 1999, five years after the genocide. Pupils held various fundraising activities and games with a cow theme, including pin the udder on the cow, dressing up as the animal and characters, as well as holding a milk and cookies stall and selling cakes and sweets.
