KIND-HEARTED pupils at a Johnstone school joined forces to give an amputee charity an early Christmas present.

Thanks to a number of fundraising events staged by generous kids at St Margaret’s Primary, a cheque for more than £350 was handed over to Finding Your Feet founder Corinne Hutton.

The Lochwinnoch quadruple amputee visited the school to collect the donation and spoke to the pupils about her story.

Ms Hutton, who lost both hands and legs below the knee after suffering acute pneumonia and septicaemia in 2013, had recently returned from a daring climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania.

Pupils were given the chance to try out Corinne's equipment 

To raise funds for Finding Your Feet, the school organised a non-uniform day, a bake sale and a nature walk in the Rannoch Woods.

During her visit to the school, Ms Hutton heard how her own fundraising efforts inspired the youngsters there.

And she was so thrilled by the trip that she later returned to talk to pupils about how her prosthetics work and put together a film to showcase the charity.
