The words are few but powerful and spoken by a pupil at a Crawley School as they joined other pupils to take part in Children in Need Day 2020.
On Friday 13th November 2020, Children at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Primary School in Crawley spent Children in Need Day 2020 putting others first.
As well as donating £1 to come to school in their own clothes, raising over £355, the children and Teachers spent time looking at the work of Children in Need and other charities, such as Cafod.
As one pupil noted ‘now more than ever, we need to do what we can to help others in our local and global community’.
Deputy Head Teacher, Jan Miles, commented:
“As ever the OLQOH community have stepped up to help this hugely important cause. Well done everyone & thank you!”
Elf Day at Crawley College helps raise money for Alzheimer’s society
Staff and students at Crawley College Group joined other colleges across their group including Chichester, Brinsbury, Haywards Heath and Worthing Colleges – as they dressed as elves earlier this month in support of Elf Day, a festive themed fundraising event for Alzheimer’s Society.
The days helped to raise nearly £1,500 for the group’s charity of the year.
Lisa Humphries, Director of Student Services and Pastoral Support for the Chichester College Group, said:
“Everyone out-elved themselves in support of Alzheimer’s Support.
“We were overwhelmed by the support everyone gave us, raising an incredible amount to kick-off our fundraising efforts for our chosen charity of the year.
“The elves really were out in force on all campuses, from making treats to sell to walking many memory miles and attending virtual workshops to find out more about dementia.
“The support our students and staff gave us was phenomenal, especially our student experience team who organised events at all of our colleges.”
The Chichester College Group will be fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society throughout the remainder of the academic year, with more events planned over the coming months/
