For the academic year 2019-2020, Gold Class have chosen The Christie Hospital in Manchester for our class charity.
Why The Christie?
The Christie has treated, and is still treating, relatives of some of the children in our class.
What does The Christie do?
The Christie Hospital treats over 44,000 cancer patients each year.
What can we do to help?
Our first event is taking place on the 22nd November when we will undertake the Christie Bear Spelling Challenge.
UPDATE - we raised £400.48 on our Spelling Challenge. An amazing amount of money.
For the academic year 2018-2019, Year 6 chose Christian Aid as their class charity.
Why Christian Aid?
We chose this charity because of the aid they offer to people all around the world who live in poverty and who have been affected by natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis.
Christian Aid work hand in hand with the church to ensure that all people, regardless of colour or race live together in harmony.
'Let us love, not in word or speech but in truth and action' (1 John 3:18).
How have we helped so far?
Last September, Gold Class travelled down to London to sing in partnership with St Paul's Cathedral. We put the photographs that we had taken and recordings of our singing onto CD's which we sold to parents.
We raised £42.60
In April, as part of our Design Technology topic, we made cakes and sandwiches and held an Afternoon Tea party for parents and carers.
We raised £99.55
In the summer term, we decided against raising money and started collecting toiletries to put into shoe boxes. We have filled 14 boxes with essential toiletries which we intend to forward to Christian Aid before the end of the academic year.
