At LCPS, we develop empathy through the support of a selection of charities chosen to reflect the different communities we live in: Restore Hope and the Chiltern Foodbank are local charities supporting families in the community; Jeans for Genes and the Poppy Appeal are national charities supporting different groups in need; and Specs for Uganda helps children to understand the challenges we face in our global community.
As part of our Harvest charity collection we collected an impressive 217kg's worth of food for the Chiltern Food Bank. This will be shared with local families who are in need. Thank you to all our families for their generous donations. The below letter is from the Food Bank.
In July 2021, our fantastic Year 6 children organised a day of "Business Enterprise" style events running myriad stalls to raise money for the local charity Restore Hope. They raised an incredible £592.62 which will be used to support families within our local community.
Mrs Nowlan's fantastic work to support those less fortunate than us has provided shoes for children in Uganda. Covid restrictions meant that the shoes took a while to arrive but they are now with the children. Well done to all the children involved in the DT workshop for support such a worthwhile cause.
The next project is already taking shape...
This year, pupils from Year 6 collected money from all classes selling poppies and stationery. They raised an important £254.62 to support the Royal British Legion.
