Claire House and East African Playgrounds - Pirate Day

What a great day Pirate Day was! We raised £659 on the day and, because each 'booty bag' full of unwanted clothes earned Claire House £10 and we collected 131 of these bags, we were able to hand over a cheque to Claire House of almost £2000. Well done everyone! Thank you for all of your very generous donations!













Lent 2015


This Lent, we raised money for MoPSA (Missionaries of the Poor Supporters Association) - UK registered charity 1048926.

Overall, we raised a fantastic £2813.08 for the appeal. What a wonderful effort!


More news of how this will be used will appear here soon. Find out how we raised the money below.

On Tuesday 24th February, Monica, from MoPSA, came into school to talk to us about the work MoPSA do. We are going to be raising money to help the brothers who work at the Missionaries of the Poor Mission in Nairobi, Kenya. This is school and home for homeless and disabled children. During the assemblies, we managed to have a Skype conversation with the children who we are going to help in Nairobi. All the money we raise will go to MoPSA. Each class will do their own charity fundraising project during Lent in an effort to raise as much money as possible to help those who need it in Africa.
