Charities at Chandlings

Part of our whole school ethos is concern for others who are less fortunate than ourselves, whether it be in the United Kingdom or abroad.

Each term some Year 6 children are chosen to be Charity Monitors and their contribution is invaluable in producing posters and raising awareness amongst their peers and helping at events.

Every year we support a number of charities who hold annual events. We have raised funds in a number of different ways:-

Jeans for Genes, Macmillan Nurses, Children in Need, Poppy Appeal and the Red Nose charity have all benefitted.

 

We have had a wonderful year of charity fundraising and we have been delighted with the children’s imaginative ideas. Over the year, we have been lucky enough to be involved with many child-led events and fundraisers including designing and selling emoji badges and pet care leaflets as well as running a charity stall at the Christmas Bazaar. The charities which were chosen to support in 2016/2017 were Water Aid, PDSA and ASSERT.

 

We have raised an amazing £7153.12 to be split between the three charities. On top of that, we have also raised an extra £2196.89 for our usual standalone charities such as Children in Need and the Poppy Appeal.
