Charity Work at Spratton Hall

Published Wednesday 2nd of July 2014 11:13:01 AM

At Spratton Hall our Year 8 pupils, as part of the PSHCE syllabus, spend time raising awareness and money for a charity of their choice.

The charities chosen are selected for various reasons and often because of a personal interest on behalf of the pupils. The charities cover many areas of the local and national community. This year the Year 8 pupils chose the following charities: Alzheimer's Society, Autism Concern, British Red Cross, Children's Society, Hope Centre for the Homeless, Music and the Deaf, Rainbows Hospice, Royal British Legion and the Matthew Hampton Foundation.

The pupils spent time raising funds and awareness for their chosen charity through an eclectic mix of events such as a sponsored 30km cycle ride, a sponsored 10km swim, a raffle for a giant Lindt bunny, cake sales, home clothes days and one group held a Charity Golf Evening where they also had a BBQ and a giant darts competition.

The benefit to everyone, pupils, staff and parents alike, is enormous and enables us to gain a greater awareness of these different charities. The involvement is not just for the short term. Many of our pupils continue their interest in the charity long after leaving Spratton Hall.
