HUNDREDS of Paisley pupils took to the Gleniffer Braes for the first Great Glenny sponsored walk.
The trek, which raised more than £2,000, was in aid of local charities and the Gleniffer High School fund.
Fancy dress was the order of the day for pupils from S1, S2 and S3. Tigers, pirates and clowns could be found scaling the famed Braes in the four-mile round-trip.
Walkers out for a stroll on the windswept Paisley hills could’ve been forgiven for thinking they had stumbled on a group of folk who had lost their way while en route to a fancy dress party!
Gordon Menzies, Principal Teacher of Physical Education, who organised the walk on behalf of the school, hailed the inaugural event as a major success.
He said: “We are delighted with the turnout for the first Great Glenny sponsored walk.
“The event was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone who took part. The walk was part of the school’s Health and Wellbeing Week, which was held to help promote a healthy lifestyle.
“Not only did it encourage exercise, but it raised the spirits of everybody involved. There was a great sense of fun and camaraderie along the route.
“The pupils went to considerable effort with their creative and colourful costumes and anyone walking on the Braes that day would have been met with quite a sight.
“We are very pleased that a significant sum was raised for local charities and our school fund and very much hope we can make this an annual event.”
