A NORTH Sutherland parent council hopes to raise £500 to make up for money-making opportunities lost as a result of lockdown.
Farr Primary and Nursery parent council say the coronavirus pandemic has brought all fundraising to a standstill.
A representative said: “As a newly elected parent council, we had so many plans and ideas around fundraising for the primary and nursery pupils in Farr.
“No sooner had we had our first meeting but lockdown hit and the world as we all knew it became a happy memory. The little events children worked hard at each year could no longer happen.”
The parent council launched the fundraiser, which earlier this week stood at £320 after a neighbouring parent council did the same with success.
The representative continued: “Any funds we receive will be paid into to the parent council’s bank account and as a committee we regularly meet with school staff and management to discuss how we can help.
