As a church school, we strive to think of those in need who deserve our support and generosity. We firmly believe in supporting the local and wider community through charitable work. We are always seeking to identify new ways in which we can help to support others and the environment.
In the past two years, we have supported many charities through various events which have been run both in and out of school.
December 2020 - PASIC
PASIC is a local charity close to our hearts at National. It aims to improve the quality of life for children and young people with cancer by providing emotional, social and practical support for families. To raise money for this important charity, the choir chose to sing carols after school for a week. In total, the children raised £330!
December 2020 - The Rotary Club, Hucknall
To support this local charity, who work tirelessly to make a lasting difference in the local community, we held a Christmas Jumper Day. We loved seeing all the different designs and raised £200!
November 2020 - Nottingham Hospitals Charity and Anti-Bullying Alliance
We held a non-uniform day to raise money for the Neonatal Unit at Nottingham University Hospitals. In the past, this charity has helped a number of our families and so we wanted to do our bit to support them. In total, £143.75 was raised.
Following our Anti-Bullying week and Celebrating Differences project, staff and pupils felt it was important to raise money to support a charity which helps to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn. In total, £143.75 was raised.
October 2020 - Under One Roof
As part of our Harvest Festival, pupils learned the importance of sharing food with those who do not have access to basic provisions. Usually, we would ask for a food donation. However, due to Covid-19 and to make sure everyone stayed safe, we held a fundraising event for Under One Roof - a not for profit organisation that provides low cost office space and meeting rooms primarily to charitable and voluntary organisations. In total, £366.50 was raised.
