YELLOW fever of a good kind took hold as a Port Glasgow school helped a cause close to their hearts.

Parents and staff at St Michael's Primary pitched in with home baking and donations for a special Go Yellow Day in aid of Ardgowan Hospice.

Pupils and their families tucked in to trays of sweet treats like caramel shortcake, cupcakes, muffins and pancakes washed down with tea, coffee and juice.

Megan Sweeney and Niall Graham are part of the school's communication team.

Megan, whose mum works in the hospice, said: "We decided to hold a coffee morning for everyone in the school, pupils, staff and parents and charging £1 entry, to help the hospice."

Niall said: "We want to raise as much as we can for the hospice as it's a local charity."

The hall was decked out in tables with yellow tablecloths and vases of matching flowers.

Staff also got into the sunshine spirit, wearing brightly-coloured clothes.

Depute head teacher Janet Russell said: "It's been a lovely event.

"There been a really nice atmosphere within the hall.

"Ardgowan Hospice is close to the hearts of lots of people in the school.

"We've had super support form parents and staff, it's been absolutely incredible.

"We have also been overwhelmed by the amount of raffle prizes we've received."

Every class got a chance to come into the hall for the special coffee morning while families went along to support the event.

Grandmother Margaret Dillon, whose granddaughter Hope Bonar, 10, attends the school.

She said: "It's been a brilliant day.

"I think it's important for the children to know about the hospice and help to fundraise for it.

"Parents and grandparents are great at supporting the school.

"I've had three children and four grandchildren come through the school and another grandchild starting in August.

"St Michael's is a very good school, very caring."
