Children from Inverlochy Primary School surprised staff at the Belford Hospital on Monday February 3 with gifts and cards.

Throughout January, each of the school’s classes took part in completing a random act of kindness with some writing letters of encouragement for their classmates and others visiting Invernevis House to sing Scottish-themed songs to residents.

Depute head teacher Tanya Ross said: ‘Each of the classes have got so much out of taking part in this challenge and our pupils are such a credit to us, always coming up with new ways of helping others.

‘For primary one and seven’s challenge, they very quickly decided they’d like to thank the staff at the Belford for all the excellent work they do in looking after and caring for our community.

‘They each took a lot of care in creating thank you cards with messages of thanks within them and a group of 11 pupils delivered biscuits and chocolates as a treat for the staff to enjoy.

‘Two of our pupils said, “It’s so nice that the doctors and nurses do such a good job for the patients where we live and we wanted to say a big thank you to them”  and “It is just so special to help others. The staff at the Belford help people so well and we wanted to say thank you to them and give them a little treat”.’
