In July the School held it annual charity week. All week students competed in their tutor groups, their years and their houses to raise the most for worthy causes. It’s an event that we’re incredibly proud of as a community, giving us the power to make a real change both locally and around the world. This year, we raised over £8000 in just five days!
This year the money will go to three charities:
Shooting Star Children’s Hospice charity cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, across Surrey and West London. They provide specialist clinical and holistic care to families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement. Shooting Star Children's Hospices offers bespoke support free of charge to families. This includes a comprehensive range of therapies and support groups, specialist nursing care and respite, symptom management, end-of-life care, and bereavement support. The nearest hospice is in Hampton.
The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) are an environmental organisation bringing together people of ages to create, improve and care for green spaces. From local parks and community gardens to Local Nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest; from school grounds and hospital grounds to waterways, wetlands and woodlands; they connect people to the green spaces that form a vital part of any healthy, happy community.
Karunalaya Social Service Society is a secular, non-profit voluntary organisation working for the protection and development of street and working children in Chennai City since 1995. It was started as a grassroots organisation for the care, protection and rehabilitation of runaway, destitute street children, children working in the fishing industry, street youth and empowerment of women in the fishing community, street and pavement dwelling communities.
Karunalaya has branched into many areas of work in the last years, yet, its central programme continues to be the rescue, shelter home care, food, clothing, health care, formal and non-formal education for runaway street and working children (boys and girls), and offers counselling, and family tracing and reunification.
