Charities we regularly support
Red Nose Day March 2021
This year, Red Nose Day is all about celebrating being a superhero for yourself or someone else. We are choosing to join schools across the UK in ‘Donate to Dress Up’ for a dressing-up day to remember! We had a variety of superheroes in school including Superman, Wonder Woman, doctors, vets, firefighters, builder and other local community heroes.
Children in Need Day
October 2021 - The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
Mrs Maczka and Miss Gardiner have completed The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge raising money for our library project. They have raised over £415 which will go towards buying new books for our library.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
They conquered The Yorkshire Three Peaks in 11 hours and 44 minutes, and apparently it is the hardest thing they've ever done and are aching but very happy.
April 2021 - Mile Run
Last year Miss Afonso ran 100 miles in a month and raised £850 for the Alzheimer’s Society. This year she will be running the London Half Marathon to support Tommy’s Charity whose aim is to find causes and treatments to save babies’ lives as well as providing trusted pregnancy and baby loss information and support. For more information on this charity please see www.tommys.org
Miss Afonso wanted to include all the children of The Avenue Infant School in this experience, so she organised a sponsored one mile run with each class - see the photos below!
