CHARITIES WE SUPPORT
At Millbrook Primary School we encourage the children to harness a strong community spirit – both locally and nationally. Over the course of the academic year we support a range of charities and raise funds as appropriate. We support national campaigns such as Sport Relief and Children in Need. We also support charities that the children have either shown an interest in or have a connection to. Below are some of the charities we have supported over the past few years.
The school council work very hard every year to raise money for these charities and school funds!
On 17th November 2017 we raised.......... Thank you everyone for your Spotacular outfits!
On Friday 29th September 2017 we raised an amazing £120 selling cakes for Macmillan Coffee Morning!
Thank you for all the kind donations and support from the PTA, Miss Dilkes and Mrs King.
The school council this year concentrated on raising money for school funds!
Every Friday they held a fund raising Friday which raised £67 over a term! This helped with extra curricular activities within school!
The choir did a fantastic job busking at Tesco which also raised over £100 for school!
We took part in raising money for Children In Need
Thank you to everyone who wore their spots to support our Children in Need voluntary fund raising. We raised £166.80 for the charity.
We recently donated our old football strip to the Winnie Mabaso Foundation. The foundation runs an orphanage for AID's orphaned children and tries to give them a better start, education and emotional support so that they can lead independent and fulfilling lives.
They were very grateful and hope to win lots of matches in their 'new' strip.
The charities that we have chosen to support this year are as follows:
Local – Child Flight
National – RSPCA
International – Red Cross
We will be raising funds for these throughout the year.
Children in Need 2014
We had a fantastic day on Friday 14th November raising money for Children in Need. The pupils and teachers all came dressed as their favourite superhero! Well done everyone we raised over £200!
