Mountain Lane School

Charity Committee/Pwyllgor Elusen




The Charity Committee is led by children, with one representative from each class from Year 2 up to Year 6, including two teaching members of staff, Mrs Middlehurst and Miss McElmeel.

The purpose of the committee is to raise funds for other people less fortunate than ourselves, supporting charities locally, nationally or internationally throughout the year. The committee, which meets on a regular basis, discuss ideas of how to raise funds as well as which charity they would like to support each term.

On the committee this year is:

Angie Thomas (Class 14), Freddie Davies (Class 13), Owen Connah (Class 12), Ava Roberts (Class 11), Alfie Neal (Class 10), Annabel Jeffrey (Class 9), Sienna Wilkie (Class 8), Aaliyah Parry (Class 7), Daisy Foster (Class 6) and Mia Parsonage (Class 5).


Some charities which we have supported in the past include:

  • Bobarth Wales Cerebral Palsy
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • Child of Brazil
  • Claire's House Children's Hospice
  • Hope House Children's Hospice
  • Macmillan's
  • Wales Air Ambulance
  • Crohn's and Colitis UK
  • Nightingale House Hospice
  • Literacy in a Box in Zambia
  • The British Heart Foundation
  • Children in Need


The committee tries to think of fun ways to raise funds to support these charities and these have included:

  • Funky Friday
  • wearing wellies to school
  • selling second hand books and toys
  • wearing onesies or pyjamas to school
  • holding a sponsored sporting activity day
  • selling biscuits and cakes
  • selling knitted chicks and cream eggs
  • holding a golf charity day
  • wearing favourite coloured clothes


From 2014, Mountain Lane has raised over £14,000 and we would like to thank all our parents and friends of the school who have so generously supported us.

Here are Sadie, Maddie, Abi and Niamh who raised over £22 for Diabetes UK by selling toys during lunch-time breaks.  Well done girls and thank you.
