Staff and pupils at Duror Primary School were delighted to receive a cheque from staff at Co-op Ballachulish for £645.

The local shop raised the money through book sales and raffle tickets, which they do this every year, choosing a different local school to donate the money to.

In return, the 10 pupils of the school talked about their favourite book and drew the front cover, which will be displayed in the Ballachulish shop.

Class teacher at the school, Lauren Stewart said: ‘Being a small school, this sum of money is challenging to raise on our own, so we very much appreciate the excellent things the Co-op do for the local community.

‘The previous manager of the Co-op who has just left to move to another Co-op in Alness, Neil Cameron, and Moggie Sim (another member of staff from the Co-op) came to present the cheque to us. We spoke about our book covers and gave them [the drawings] in return for the donation.

‘These pictures are now available to see and the children are very proud of them.
