Milton pupils steal the showFollow @PwC_Scotland
With teabags and coffee cups at the ready, the Glasgow office's Force for Good team swung into action recently to support Milton School in Glasgow as pupils and staff took to the stage to perform their version of South Pacific.

With three performances for family, friends and the community, the participants put on a fantastic show proving that having a physical or learning disability needn’t prevent you from performing like a professional!
Indeed, according to our team, the pupils delivered their lines and songs – including solos – with minimal support. However, the same couldn’t quite be said for some of the teaching staff. Luckily, the team was on hand to provide much needed refreshments to performers and to the audience – something the school often struggles to resource themselves.
Our Glasgow office has been strengthening its relationship with the school community, following an initial volunteering session in some of the classrooms in October 2011, set up in conjunction with Scottish Business in the Community.
By providing refreshments during the South Pacific shows, the school has been able to raise much needed funds which will be ploughed into the refurbishment of the sensory room in the autumn. And we have already signed up to help with the decorating and fit out.
Charles Bleakley, Force for Good champion in Glasgow, commented:
“It’s not always about the big gestures –even small tasks and activities can make a huge difference to organisations such as Milton School. We look forward to returning after the summer holidays to help out again.”
