Rugby players get their kit off for charity

CARNOUSTIE Rugby Club players and coaches have got their kit off for charity.

In support of Calum Owen’s daughter, Chloe, who attends Hillside Special School, Cumnock, the players have produced a calendar costing £10 which can be bought from various outlets in Carnoustie or any of the players to raise money to help refurbish and refit the school’s sensory room with new equipment.

This is a space where the young people can go and be completely relaxed, it is a great favourite with all the pupils.

Chloe has been a pupil at Hillside since she was two years old. She started going to the pre-five group where she met friends she has grown up through the school with. She has been given the responsibility of being head girl this year, a role she carries with great enthusiasm.

Hillside Special Needs School in Cumnock has 31 pupils ranging from two to 18 years of age.

The school has attained Eco-Schools’ highest award level recently – the prestigious Green Flag. This is just the latest of a long line of achievements the school has achieved over the years.

Hillside is fully equipped with a hydro pool which has been refurbished with a new sound and lighting system. There is a fully equipped kitchen where all meals are prepared using vegetables from their garden when available.

As well as the Eco garden there is a sensory garden, an orchard, a play park, soft play area, ball pool, water bed, large touch screen televisions and a fully equipped flat. The recent purchases for the school have been an iPad for each class.
