Nine pupil groups sought the funding for Teddy Bear Group (which was chosen by two groups, CLAN, Riding for the Disabled, Buckie District Support Group and Keane’s Stars – while Logan’s Fund was the chose charity for three groups.
A spokeswoman for the school told insideMoray: “Each team put forward very solid and convincing arguments for their chosen local charity but, of course, only one could be the winner.
“Judging was carried out by Neil Johnson (Rector), Anne Sim (YPI Coordinator), Councillor Sonya Warren and former winner, Amber Smith.
“The winning group consisted of Taylor Murray, Lucie Rose and Jaymee Hannah, who represented Logan’s Fund, who will now receive the £3000 cheque.”
