Sightings of angels are expected to soar in the coming weeks - but not because of any heavenly intervention.

Although they come complete with halo and wings, these angels are handmade from clay and won’t be descending from the skies.

They are creations of third year art students from Graeme High School in Falkirk and are being sold to raise cash for Strathcarron Hospice in 
Denny.

The angels come in a range of sizes – from a few inches up to much larger figures that can be used as a garden feature - and are priced between £5 and £30.

Art teacher Audrey Duguid said: “The pupils have been leading on the whole of the project and coming up with some great ideas and designs.

“My mum died of cancer and I know that Strathcarron offers a great deal of support to those affected.”

The angels are being created as part of the pupils’ enterprise studies in which they take a product idea, design it, oversee its manufacture and then market the finished product.

Some of the larger angels will be placed in the grounds of Strathcarron to draw attention to the project which has already raised £200. It is hoped that all future S3 classes will work on the same project.

House builders Cala Homes has agreed to place the angels at its Larbert sales site as well as invest in the project.
