Charities We Support
We have supported the Ribble Valley Food Bank - donating our Harvest 2023 baskets to those in need. The worship council visited the foodbank and helped organise the food into donation bags. We've decided as a council to contribute even more - so we have started our own craft and art supply donation box!
During World Book Day (March 2023) we had a special visit from Hughie and Freddie! They presented their book 'Friends are amazing' and shared their journey of hope and friendship. We were all invited to buy a signed copy of their book to support their charity - Manchester Children's Hospital.
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!
Spring 2020 Charity - My Colourful Memories
our recent Grandparent afternoon supporting our chosen charity. 100 grandparents enjoyed an afternoon tea and were entertained by our talented children. We raised £680 for My Colourful Memories - a creative art project for people suffering with dementia. It was a wonderful afternoon for all involved and we hope to repeat the event in the summer term!
This term we are fundraising for Maddi's Butterflies.
We held a Pyjama Day on Friday 22nd November and collected
and collected brand new pyjamas to be distributed to children on local Oncology wards at Christmas.
In addition, an amazing £700 has been raised for the charity from donations in memory of Mrs Rossi.
