Fundraising and Awareness
Academic Year 2023-2024
Children in Need took place on the 17th November, and proved as popular as ever. Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthwhile cause - we raised a total of £415.26!
In October we began our Food Bank drive, to collect donations for Jimmy's Food Bank. Across the two week collection period, we managed to fill over 20 crates, full of long life food, which will help local families.
Thank you to everyone who donated!
September saw the return of the Macmillan Coffee Mornings in our staff rooms. Our staff never pass up the opportunity for cake, especially if they can raise money at the same time!
Academic Year 2022-2023
We are thrilled that Covid restrictions have now lifted and our community fundraising efforts can now resume.
Last week the Royal British Legion contacted us to say that Hamworthy Primary Schools were one of the top five highest fundraisers to the Poppy Appeal in the Hamworthy area. In total the schools raised £743.53 and the total across the Hamworthy Area was £3,217.16
Thank you to each and every one of our parents, carers and children who purchased merchandise or donated any money towards our Poppy Appeal.
As we headed towards the Christmas break, we asked our families to donate items to our festive food bank. Donations were then split between Jimmy's Food Bank and the Moor Community Fund, which will all go to helping create festive hampers for those in need this season.
We were overwhelmed with over 400 donations!
On Friday 18th November we held a non-uniform day for Children in Need and raised a fantastic £579.21. Thank you to everyone who donated and took in a very fun day across the Federation.
A huge well done to Hollie in Year 4, who grew her hair and braved the big chop, donating it to the Little Princess Trust - a UK charity that provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer.
Hollie raised an amazing £290!
Well done Hollie from all at Hamworthy Primary Schools!
We kickstarted Kindness Week on Monday 14th November by running Odd Socks Day across the Federation. This provided an opportunity in school for the children to have fun and send the important message out that we should all be allowed to be ourselves.
Mrs Jones in Guillemots went as far as to spend the day in odd shoes as well as odd socks!
Friday 11th November was Remembrance Day, and all children who are members of uniformed groups came to school in their group uniform. We had Rainbows, Beavers, Squirrels, Cubs, Brownies, Guides, Scouts, Cadets and St John's Ambulance.
Throughout the week our House Captains were selling Poppy Appeal merchandise across the Federation, and we sold out of everything!
In total, Hamworthy Primary Schools raised a fantastic £743.53
