BUILDING A NEW SCHOOL FOR THE CHILDREN OF UPHILL JUNIOR: THE PROJECT BEGINS!
Funding to begin the new school has come from two major sources: 1. The pupils of Dollar Academy in Scotland undertook a whole school sponsored walk through the Ochil Hills in September, with The Uphill Trust being one of their nominated charities
With our share of the funds will be be able to build the first classroom
2. Retired paralympian Danny Fureyundertook a successful 10 km sponsored wheelchair runthrough the streets of Dundee in October which raised over £1500 for The Uphill Trust
Danny's funds will be used to build the new latrine block
