Fundraising 2018-19

We are very fortunate to be able to help others both in our local community and across the globe.

We will be running a number of fundraising events this year.

October 2018

On Tuesday 9th October, we welcomed representatives from Crawley Open House and The Easter Team to St. Clare’s class assembly where we presented them with the food donations that we had collected. May we thank you for your harvest offerings which will support these local charities.

 

Mini Enterprise Projects 2018-2019

On Thursday 1st November, Year 3 organised a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

A huge number of children and parents attended the event enjoying a slice of cake, a hot drink and jazzy background music. The children in Year 3 worked hard all week in preparation for the event. St Therese of Lisieux class made delicious chocolate chip cookies while St Vincent de Paul made scrumptious ricecrispies cakes (neither of them lasting too long). They worked even harder on the day, whether they were cleaning; serving cakes and juice, taking photos, collecting money, collecting children from around the school or sharpening pencils. An indication of the amount we would raise came at 10:00am when it was announced the children had already collected £200.

The final amount raised was £591.22!!

Year 3 would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who brought in cakes, attended the coffee morning or bought a cake after school. The morning wouldn’t have been possible without your generosity and support. The amount raised, combined with the Race for Life event in July, means the school has now raised over £3300 for cancer charities in this calendar year!! Once again, a big thank you to everyone.

Fundraising 2017-18

In June 2018, Mr Lambert and the school council organised the Race for Life which was ran by children, parents and teachers. We raised £3000 for Cancer Research! Thank you to the PFA who helped run the event. More details about the day can be found in the article below:

In June of this year, the school choir took part in the Community Charity Concert, which was organised by Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Primary School and hosted by St Wilfrid’s Catholic School. The concert raised £1210 in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice.

At the end of our Carol Service at the Friary, we collected money for HomeStart charity. We managed to collect £125.

In September 2017, children and parents brought in tins, packets and cans of food for the Harvest Collection. This food was then donated to Crawley Open House.
