Raising money for charity continues to be a strong feature of life at Withington. All Forms hold events for a wide variety of charities and the focus, as always, is on having fun whilst raising a great deal of money. More than £30,000 was raised during the last school year through activities ranging from whole school extravaganzas, such as the Charity Dance Competition and a staff talent show, to a constant stream of cake sales. Girls who are going to Uganda and The Gambia also continuously work extremely hard to raise money which helps to fund orphanages and projects in the poorer areas of both countries.
Some of the charities that we have supported include: Jeans for Genes, The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, The Christie, Comic Relief, Cancer and Heart Disease Research, The Wood Street Mission, Francis House, McMillan, the Booth Centre, JDRF, Children in Need and Kimili Mission, to name just a few.
All Forms work hard to come up with interesting ways to raise money and have fun. The Juniors came to school dressed as superheroes for Children in Need. The Junior School embark on many different fundraising events, including the biennial ‘penny push’ and a teddy raffle. The Juniors are also very good at filling up the Barnardo’s boxes and we are grateful to parents for helping with this.
We are very grateful to all the girls and their families for their efforts and enthusiasm and we look forward to many more events in the future.
