Fundraising for the Shoulder to Soldier charity
Our pupils decided that they would like the door collection from our second nativity play to go towards helping people in our local area. We raised over £200 thanks to the generosity of our families at Gilded Hollins. This morning, the whole school were treated to a visit and a special assembly from members of the shoulder to Soldier charity. During the assembly, Ethan (a Y6 pupil) was presented with a special gift. Ethan helped to raise a staggering £690 for the charity last summer completing the National Three Peaks Challenge alongside another former Gilded Hollins pupil. Today we all learned how the money Ethan raised has already helped so many veterans, soldiers and soldiers families. We are all extremely proud of Ethan! A big thank you to everyone who donated and to our all of our caring pupils.
Fundraising for the Homeless
Our pupils decided that they would like the door collection from our nativity play to go towards helping the homeless of Leigh this Christmas. We raised an amazing £150 which we presented to Paul, Tori and Kelly from the Leigh Homeless Support Project. A big thank you to everyone who donated, and to our caring pupils. We are very proud of you!
Christmas Jumper update
Thanks to the efforts of our children and staff, we raised a fantastic £116.57 for Save the Children. Well done everyone!
Supporting the homeless
Our super School Council came up with the wonderful idea of raising funds to help the homeless people they had seen in and around Leigh town centre. Helped by our Learning Mentor, Mrs Sheena Thompson, the Council challenged each of our classes to come up with a way to collect as much money as possible to support local people living on the streets. Cake sales, sponsored silences and treasure hunts were quickly organised and more than £500 was raised in total. At a special assembly on Tuesday 17th September 2017, the money was handed over the representatives of our local support group by Year Six Councillors Ethan and Phoebe. A big thank you to all of our School Councillors for their care and compassion, to all of our pupils and staff who joined in the fundraising, and to all our parents who generously supported each event. Our efforts will make a big difference to a lot of people.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
On Friday 29th September 2017 we organised a fundraising Macmillan Coffee Morning. Dozens of parents and grandparents popped into the school hall to treat themselves to a warm drink and a cake. Lots of people donated tasty goodies for the party and our super Year Six pupils provided the silver service. We managed to raise a wonderful £460! A big thank you to Mrs Halton, the Year Six Senior HLTA, for putting the coffee morning together. Thank you, also, to everyone who supported on the day.
