What have we got planned this year?
We will be supporting a number of charities this year along with our own charity, Friends of Castle Batch (FCB).
FCB will be raising funds with the usual casual wear days at the end of term, the dates are:
19th October 2018 - £270 raised, 15th February 2019, 5th April 2019 and 24th May 2019. We never do one on the last day of the academic year as that is Yr6's day to have their shirts signed and it is a celebration day for them. We will update this page to show how much is raised on each of the days.
We will also be supporting Macmillan Coffee Morning on 28th September so if any keen bakers want to donate some lovely treats they will be very welcomed! Please come along and join us from drop off until 10.30am to raise money (and enjoy cake!) for a very worthy cause! Thank you to everyone who came along to our coffee morning - we raised an amazing £153!
Harvest Celebration. Can all children bring in one item from the list recently issued for Harvest to donate to the Weston Foodbank. The Foodbank will be collecting all donations at the end of the assembly. A huge well done to everyone who brought an item in for Harvest. We collected an incredible 326.60kg of food. This support is much appreciated and it will be put to good use to help those in need in our local area.
Children in Need is on 16th November 2018. It is casual wear for a £1 donation with the proceeds being split between Children in Need and Weston Hospicecare. We raised a great £388 on this day with both charities receiving £194 - thank you!
Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children is on 14th December 2018 - please join us in a jumper or Christmas coloured items of clothing for a £1 donation for Save the Children.
Red Nose Day is on 15th March 2019 - watch this space for our ideas for Red Nose Day!
