Mountain Lane School

Charity Committee / Pwyllgor Elusen

 

Welcome / Croeso

 

The Charity Committee is led by children, with one representative (voted in by the pupils from each class) from Year 2 up to Year 6, including two teaching members of staff, Miss McElmeel and Mrs Davies.

The purpose of the committee is to raise funds for other people less fortunate than ourselves, supporting charities locally, nationally and internationally throughout the academic 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:

Frankie (Class 14), Amy (Class 13), Bobby (Class 12), Summer (Class 11), Charlotte (Class 10), Alfie (Class 9), Luciana (Class 8), Annabelle (Class 7), Eve (Class 6) and Freya (Class 5).

Thank you to The Charity Committee for all their hard work organising our recent Autumn term's Charity day. The committee had decided to support Children in Need. We raised over £450 by wearing an item of clothing that was either yellow (the colour of Children in Need) or something Pudsey bear related. The school has never seemed so bright! What a brilliant day!

Some charities which the Charity Committee have supported in the past include:

  • Bobarth Wales Cerebral Palsy
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • Child of Brazil
  • Children in Need
  • Claire's House Children's Hospice
  • Hope House Children's Hospice
  • Macmillan
  • Wales Air Ambulance
  • Crohn's and Colitis UK
  • Nightingale House Hospice
  • Literacy in a Box, Zambia
  • The British Heart Foundation
  • Children in Need
  • World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
  • Plas Bellin support for families 

 

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

  • Funky Friday
  • Wear wellies to school
  • Selling second hand books and toys
  • Onesies or pyjamas to school
  • Sponsored sporting activity day
  • Bake sale, selling biscuits and cakes
  • Selling knitted chicks and cream eggs
  • Golf charity day
  • Favourite coloured clothes
  • Animal related clothes/mask
  • Sponsored walk  

Since 2014, Mountain Lane has raised over £15,000 and we would like to thank all our parents and friends of the school who have so generously supported us.
