Fundraising and Charity Work

Backpack Appeal

Thank you to all back pack donations filled with clothes, toys and stationary. We collected 24 backpacks, which have been taken to some very appreciative new homes.

Syrian Refuge Clothing Appeal

Mrs Hamer gives her huge thanks to all of you who have donated unwated items of clothing for the Syrian Refuge Appeal. Every little really does help. In a world where some have much and others have very little, no gesture is too small.

Macmillan Coffee Morning Music Concert raises £200

Well done to all children who performed for our biggest audience yet. The school hall was packed as we entertained in yet another of our coffee morning concerts. Every child in the school performed and there were many instrumentalists playing as part of the school band, individuals or duets. Thank you to all who donated cakes for the sale.

Harvest Collection -food parcels go to Longridge

Our Harvest collection has been sent to Longridge Food Bank where it will be distributed to people in need in our surrounding areas. Thank you again for your kind donations; it really teaches the children a valuable lesson about people who are less fortunate than themselves.

Update: The children received a thank you card from Reverend John Ball for the generous food received for the food bank.

Year 5 bring joy to residents at Bushell House Rest Home

Thank you Year 5 who sang beautifully in an afternoon of Christmas spirit. We look forward to returning to the local rest home next Christmas. Pre-School children also brought great joy to their families, as they performed Christams songs in school!

Operation Christmas Child

Our sincere thanks to you for giving unwanted toys for children living in poverty. Your shoe boxes were taken to Shoe Market in town to be distributed to children just in time for Christmas. We will certainly be collecting shoe boxes each year to help children living within Preston.

All of your generous food donations collected for Harvest were taken to a local food back and gratefully received. Thank you to all who donated food to send to Ingol food bank. School and parish collected and sent many boxes of food. We will continue to collect food throughout the year.

‘Make a Splash’ Coffee Morning Concert-Give The Thirsty a Drink

What a wonderful day we have had. Children from every class performed in our ‘Make A Splash’ concert. It was wonderful to welcome so many parents and visitors. In total, we raised £110 for Make a Splash appeal (CAFOD). Some children sold plants (kindly donated by Mrs Eastham), cakes and some Year 6 children held a ‘guess the teddy’s name’ competition. Thank you to all who donated cakes-they were delicious. Here are some pictures below.

Sports Relief 2016- We raised £1.100!

Infants got together for a giant conga! The children all had huge smiles…. so much so that the juniors couldn’t resist joining in. We did a full lap around the school and church in a giant conga line.

The juniors ran 1 mile to raise money for sports relief. They all did a fantastic job and supported each other really well…

 Fairtrade Concert

We ended our fairtrade fortnight with a music concert where we sold fairtrade products and performed to parents, parishioners and the community. Please click on the photos below to see the videos of their perfomances.
