Slam dunk for St Ninian’s fundraisers

St Ninian’s High kids hit the court recently in aid of a cause close to home.

The Giffnock pupils attended a Glasgow Rocks basketball game to raise money for SNAC, a charity which supports the families of those affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

The boys pitched in to help SNAC and friend and fundraiser Jonathan Kent, a third year pupil who was diagnosed with the disease six years ago.

Giffnock man Michael Kent, chairman of SNAC and Jonathan’s dad, commented: “The boys are always so willing to give up their time and help with the fundraising, and this is the third year in a row that Glasgow Rocks has supported the charity.

“They invite a different charity in for each home game and help to raise thousands of pounds each year for all sorts of good causes.

“We were delighted to raise £300 this year and we are so grateful to the team for their ongoing support.”

It wasn’t all work, as the St Ninian’s boys grabbed a picture with the basketball stars and Glasgow Rocks cheerleaders — pictured are Matthew MacDonald, James Gallagher, Ciaran McAndrew, Cameron Smith, Jonathan Kent, Jack Lindsey and Patrick Sloan, all S3.
