FOTW ( Friends of the West ) were looking to support the school in fundraising efforts to buy outdoor gym equipment. This was something the children were especially keen to have added to the playground following the devastating fire to the bandstand in 2022.

So the bright sparks at West Primary school in Paisley’s Newton Street thought what better way to turn the fire damage into something positive for the school than to host the first ever West fundraising FIREWALk! πŸ”₯πŸšΆπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸšΆ

Terry the Dinosaur made his appearance. Terry is a hand reared 7ft friendly T- Rex πŸ¦– he was coming along with his friend Marshall from Paw Patrol. They are loved meeting all the spectators and also chasing our nervous fire walkers across the burning coals who were piped from the school to the fire walk by Piper Michael Kerr from Kilbarchan Pipe Band.
