Cash for Kids
In late 2015, over 70 primary and secondary schools in the Scottish Borders were invited to enter a competition to design a 100% cashmere scarf for local charity Cash for Kids and have it made, in Scotland, by Sinclair Duncan.
Sales and Marketing Director at Sinclair Duncan, Debbie Paterson, announced the winner live on the radio at the winner’s school assembly: ‘The entries received were of such a high standard, but there was one that stood out for all of us. The careful choice of colour and contemporary design shows a talent beyond her years.’ Little did the winner (9 year-old Eve McKenzie from Knowepark Primary School in Selkirk) know what an impact sales from her scarf would have on her community:
Profits from these scarves will ensure:
7 children snuggle up in their own bed for the first time.
3 autistic children can play in specially adapted safe spaces.
1000 children wake up to gifts this Christmas.
45 children will have warm clothes and shoes.
A family can sit down to home cooked meals.
