Charities We Support

Our children are pro-active in fundraising for charities of their choice.

Phoebe (year 5) decided that she would like to raise money for Macmillan cancer.  "I wanted to raise money for Macmillan because they helped my Grandad a lot." Phoebe did a 10k run and raised an amazing £650!

Jake (year 6) ran 5K to raise money for the Cri du Chat support group charity.  Jake said "The run was very tiring but was worth it as the charity has helped support his big brother." Jake raised just over £200. Well done Jake! 



Ben (year 6) took part in Feb on the Floor, where he slept on the floor for a week to raise money for the Stand By Me charity. Stand by Me offer support for families from many different situations and back grounds. "I saw a TV programme about families who could not afford beds and had to sleep on the floor. I thought that if they can go without then so can I!" Ben raised £480 for the charity. Amazing Ben!
