SPAR East Wemyss, owned and operated by CJ Lang and Son Limited has recently donated a generous £350 to East Wemyss Primary School.

The money was raised through the sale of single use carrier bags, which cost customers 5p per bag.

The school will use the donation towards their visit to Amazonia in Strathclyde Country Park. The cost of the trip would have been around £700 that the school would have had to fundraise themselves.

A representative from East Wemyss Primary school said: “Thank you for the donation it is greatly appreciated.  This will go towards the school visit to Amazonia in Strathclyde Country Park.” The school are very grateful for the help that can be provided to them with the tight school budgets they have to stick to.

Shaun Muirhead, East Wemyss Store Manager said: “We are happy to help the local school in any way we possibly can, supporting the school allows the children to be able to take part in extra activities which otherwise may not have been possible.”
