The final week of the autumn term was chock-full of, yes chocolates, but superb charity fundraising too. Collectively the school community raised over £2,200 in just one week thanks to the exciting events taking place around the school. Christmas Jumper Day was a warm success for both the junior and senior schools and collectively raised over £400 for Save the Children; both carol concerts, along with the Pre-Prep Nativity collected over £750 and were divided between the Guild of Help and The Children’s Society. The Christmas raffle also earned over £300 for the Guild of Help. Amnesty International and Doreen’s Crèche in South Africa benefitted from the Senior lunchtime charity concert which raised over £300.
It was the Lower 4 charity week as well which included the sale of edible goodies, a staff v pupils rounders match and a treasure hunt, raising over £450 for their chosen charities: Make a Wish, Motor Neurone Disease and Antony Nolan Cancer.
Many thanks go to the girls, parents and staff (including the busy accounts department) once again for their continued generosity and support with the fantastic fundraising across the school.
