Tree-mendous news for eco project

A PROJECT which encourages youngsters to respect and care for the environment has received £11,000 from the Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund.

The Tree Amigos scheme will educate 150 pupils from five primary schools in communities around the airport about a range of issues including climate change and carbon footprints.

Glasgow Airport has now supported the project, which was created by Trees4Scotland, through its FlightPath Fund for three years.

Amongst the schools taking part are Killermont Primary in Bearsden.
