At Feltonfleet we are extremely proud to be a community that supports a number of charities and charity events throughout the year. In addition, we select two smaller fundraising organisations as our nominated school charities and the Year 8 Charities Committee works hard to lead a programme of activities.
This year our two chosen charities are:
We were introduced to Momentum Children's Charity through a former parent. They support children with cancer and life-changing conditions and their families, across South West London, Surrey and Sussex. Please do click on the image to visit the website for a closer look at their work.
Recently retired and long-standing member of staff, Mr Nigel Baxter, volunteers for the local Air Ambulance service. As an independent charity, they are extremely grateful for every penny they receive to enable them to provide life-saving support to the emergency services. Last year alone, they were called out to help over 2,000 people in life-threatening conditions. Click on the logo to find out more.
As well as supporting these chosen charities, we also support a number of national charity days. We have already held a very successful Macmillan Coffee morning which raised £1000 and we will also support Children in Need and Comic Relief Red Nose Day. The Pre-Prep staff will also run their Quiz Night for the Royal Marsden Cancer Care.
Last year, pupils, lead by the Charities Committee and supported by the Friends of Feltonfleet and staff members, raised an amazing £43,000 for charity through a calendar of events, from cake sales and mufti days, to Design Technology produce sales and summer fairs.
