A festive fundraising week earlier this month has helped to raise more than £2,500 in support of international medical research charity, DEBRA.
Supporting those directly affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a potentially fatal skin condition that can cause constant pain due to internal and external blistering, the charity has grown from being a UK-founded support group for parents, guardians and carers of other young children with the condition, named in honour of founder, Phyllis Hilton's daughter, to today, in which the charity now has national support groups in more than 40 countries.
Raising money to support this important cause, the Senior School community participated in a fun-filled week at the beginning of December that included a pupil-led festive market, a spirited dodgeball tournament and a House mascot race (well done to our winner, Moore Moose!), while a number of pupils relished the opportunity to soak a teacher, all in the name of charity. The Clyde House Gameshow Mash-Up featured pupils and teachers showing off their knowledge as they competed in game shows including 'Countdown' and 'Would I Lie To You', whilst the 'Clyde Stride' saw pupils and teachers face the challenge of running 15km around the subway stations of Glasgow.
There is still time to support the Clyde cause!
