NSPCC – Friday 7th May 2021
Thank you to everyone for your very generous donations. We managed to raise an AMAZING £319.50 for this very worthwhile charity. The children all had a great day doing some fun maths activities and they all looked great in their own clothes sporting patterns or numbers. Some even designed their own T Shirt and headgear!
Catholic Children’s Society Lenten Collection – THANK YOU!
Throughout Lent, we managed to raise an AMAZING £913.40 for the Catholic Children’s Society. Parents were asked to donate and we also raised funds by holding a non uniform day on the last day- ‘As bright as possible’ was the theme – to celebrate the joy of Easter. Thank you to our school community for such great generosity especially in these difficult times. This money will truly make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. We really do apprentice all the support our parents and children give towards such great causes.
Children in Need
Across the school, the children all had a great day raising awareness of the charity , Children in Need. Now, more so than ever, children need our help. Across the UK, young people’s mental health is being challenged like never before. For those already facing issues in their lives, the uncertainty and anxiety around the Coronavirus pandemic have only made things more difficult. With your support, Children in Need can be on the ground helping the children who need us.
Thank you so much for all the efforts with the children’s outfits and of course for your generosity. We managed to raise an AMAZING £600 !!!!!!
A huge thank you to all the pupils and staff who embraced the #helloyellow campaign for Young Minds. They are the UK’s leading charity fighting to improve the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people in the UK.
As we begin the season of Autumn, we think about Harvest time and about those less fortunate than ourselves. Last year, all the children across the school donated food and other items to St Albans Foodbank and to the Women’s Refuge. It was very gratefully received and many people benefited from your generosity.
Given the current circumstances, now more than ever, we have a duty to help the people in our local community by supporting our local foodbanks and other support groups and so we would like to ask for donations of items during the month of October.
Please give whatever items you can to help out. Below is a list from the St Albans Foodbank website of items that they are lacking in, as well as a few more items.
Most Needed Items (we prefer long-life and tins)
• Fruit juice (long life)
• Rice pudding (Tinned)
• Instant mash / tinned potatoes
• Jams and spreads
• Desserts (Jellies, Steamed puddings, Angel delight etc )
• Laundry tablets/ liquids/ gels
• Shampoo and conditioners
• Shower gel
• Sanitary products
Please can you give whatever you can as your donations will truly make a difference. A box will be available to donate in each of the classrooms.
We managed to raise £600.
