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.
On the committee this year is:
Tyler Lloyd (Class 14), Tom Wilson (Class 13), Takara Coventry (also Class 13), Harry McLaren (Class 12), Daniel Mitchell (Class 11), Abbie Smith (Class 10), Charlie Salisbury (Class 9), Annabel Jeffrey (Class 8), Harry Sprowell (Class 7), Ella Woodyatt (Class 6) and Violet Morris (Class 5).
Some charities which we have supported in the past include:
The committee tries to think of fun ways to raise funds to support these charities and these have included:
From 2014, Mountain Lane has raised over £13,000 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.
