Autumn Term Fundraising

We’re starting the week off with a bang, celebrating the charity fundraising we achieved last term. When put together this is an incredible total, we are so proud of everything our community has achieved.
MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
Friends of Windermere School and Parents held various coffee mornings and raised a magnificent £550 for Macmillan Cancer Care.
JEANS FOR GEANS
Jeans for Genes changes lives for everyone across the UK living with a genetic disorder. Early in the term we all put on our Jeans for Jeans for Genes day! Raising a staggering £832.
MERLIN’S MAGIC WAND
Merlin’s Magic Wand is an international children’s charity who provide magical experiences for children who need it most. The Senior Council organised a Halloween dress-up day for Browhead and raised £85 in the process – well done!
BOXES OF HOPE
Boxes of Hope takes a simple shoe box filled with different items to deprived children in Eastern Europe. The school was asked to donate as many shoeboxes full of items to support this cause.
CHILDREN IN NEED
BBC’s Children in Need’s mission is to help ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy, secure and has the opportunities they need to reach their potential. Elleray put on their PJ’s and enjoyed some great activities and food to raise £235 for Children in Need.
CANDY CANES FOR CANCER RESEARCH
The Round Square Team sold candy canes and asked the customer to write a tag, which was then attached to the candy cane and this was hand-delivered to the recipient during our school Christmas dinner. Overall they raised an amazing £400.10 to give to Cancer Research!
SAVE THE CHILDREN CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY
We put on our Christmas jumpers to raise £310 for Save the Children.
A huge thank you to everyone who so generously donated.
