SUMMER sun may seem like a distant memory this June, but children at St Cadoc’s primary have been brushing up on their skin safety information ahead of the holidays.
Pupils were visited by Lee Smith, of skin cancer charity Masscot recently, to learn all about the increased rates of the illness among Scottish youngsters, and how to avoid it by keeping safe in the sun
The children took part in a competition to design a sun hat in school colours, and the winner was chosen by a local businessman Michael Smith of ORB International, who then made 80 of them especially for St Cadoc’s pupils.
The hats cost £2 each, with the money raised from them being shared between Masscot and the Tommy Burns Foundation.
