Fund Raising

Academic Years 2016-18

We would like to thank all the children, their families and friends, who so generously support our fundraising activities.  Last academic year alone, we raised over £1600 for charity including Jeans for Genes; Haiti Appeal; The Brain Tumour Charity; Catholic Truth Society (which included donating to victims of Grenfell Tower); CAFOD and Barnardos.  This would not be possible without the on-going generosity and support of the whole school community.

Academic Year 2014-15

We would like to thank all the children, their families and friends, who so generously support our fund raising activities. This academic year alone, we have raised an incredible £2423.82 for: Jeans for Genes, Farm Africa, Mencap (Grove Cottage), Cancer Research, CAFOD, UNICEF (Nepal Earthquake Appeal), Clic Sargent and Barnardo’s. This would not be possible without the ongoing generosity and support of the whole school community.

The Big Toddle 2015

On Wednesday 10th June, Early Years and KS1, with the help of Year 6, took part in a sponsored Big Toddle to raise money for Barnardo’s. All the children dressed as pirates and walked around the whole perimeter of the playing fields which, for some of the smaller children, is a very long way! Each child was sponsored by families and friends for the number of laps they walked or for the total distance they completed. The children raised £412.50 for this wonderful charity. A big thank you to all who took part.


Wig Wednesday 2015

On Wednesday 13th May the children – and staff – were allowed to wear a wig if they brought in a pound to be donated to the Clic Sargent charity which helps young children and their parents deal with cancer. A total of £135 was raised for this wonderful charity, and a big thank you goes out to everyone who took part.
