Whole School Charities: THE POPPY APPEAL (The Royal British Legion), CAFOD

In the past we have supported other charities such as Blind Veterans UK, Ieuan the Lion Memorial fund, The Dai Fib Appeal, the Syrian refugee appeal, the Phillipines and Water Aid. Some of the activities we have carried out to raise much neede funds for these worthwhile causes are sponsored walks, climbing the equivalent of Everest, "I'm a Teacher, Get Me out of Here", quizzes, raffles, splat the teacher, hunger lunches, fairground stalls and lots and lots more. New ideas for fundraising are always welcomed and the students incharge of their Year Groups (listed above) have a complex task to organise and recruit BUT it is always, always worth the effort.
