Although Christmas seems a bit of a distant memory, you may recall our ‘Blue for Loo’ Day, just before Christmas. I am delighted to tell you that we raised an incredible £1443.00 for the charity Toilet Twinning.org. This means that we have been able to sponsor six school toilet blocks in Malawi, Africa. This will be truly transformational for those children and staff.
The WhiteChapel Centre are an independent charity which works to improve the health and social wellbeing of the communities in Liverpool. We serve and to make a positive impact through the employment and volunteering opportunities we provide.
We raised a £1000 pounds
Staff raised £220 pounds on Macmillian Cake Day
To raise money for UNICEF, on Friday 14th June 2019, we completed a football based obstacle course and learnt about some of the things children around the world have to deal with.
As a school we raised a gigantic £2000 which was one of the highest amounts out of any school in the country. The money we raised can help provide life-saving food and vaccines, life-changing education and protection from violence so that more children are able simply to be children. Childhood should be one endless playtime.
Christmas Appeal this year is to support Baby Basics - a volunteer led project which supports new mums and dads struggling to provide even the basics for their new baby.
The volunteers work with midwives and other health professionals to provide an essential kit to some of our most vulnerable families. We have a local branch here in Liverpool doing an amazing job but desperate for more donations.
Instead of buying cards and gifts for staff, we ask that you consider donating any of the following much needed items.
