Spring Fundraising 2020

Our charity focus for the Spring term was the Good Shepherd Appeal for Fr. Hudson's Care. Fr Hudson's is a charity that operates locally within our Dicoese. The team at Fr. Hudson's work on outreach projects with familes, the vulnerable in society, the homeless, the elderly- reaching out to all sectors of our local society to provide support and comfort for those in need. All families have been provided with a collection box in order to donate to this worthy cause, 

  

Autumn Fundraising: 2019

Our school focus for the Autumn term was fundraising for CAFOD. We joined forces with our other eight Collegiate schools and raised a fantastic £5000 in total to buy a health clinic to support the most vulnerable in the world, providing medical care for their community. Phil Mayland joined us for a whole school assembly on Monday 23rd September to launch our fundraising events and explain to us the right for everyone to live a healthy, happy life. We learnt how children in Uganda and other parts of the world do not have access to fresh water, enough food to keep them healthy or an education. We held a wide range of fundraising events as a whole school and as individual classes throughout this term in our quest to contribute to the Health Clinic and were really proud to have raised over £700 as a school- the greatest primary school contributors to the collegiate fund. Many thanks to all of our supportive families for your generosity and to our wonderful children for your super fundraising efforts and enterprise! A special thank must go to Lucas Jones, who, with the support of KMF, sold a range of donated products and donated over £100 to the overall fundraiser.
