Mountain Lane School

Charity Committee

  

The Charity Committee is led by children, with one representative from each class from Year 2 up to Year 6, including the Headteacher, Mrs Walker and 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.

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

  • 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 £12,000 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.
