Charity – a record breaking year at St Edmund’s.
Respect – Responsibility – Resilience
Charity work is at the heart of St Edmund’s with a high value placed on raising awareness and funds by all members of the school community. Students demonstrate a strong commitment to planning and organising events. They also use their imagination to come up with new ideas to involve the school community in fund raising.
Each year in January students nominate a local, national and international charity to support, and they also decide how to allocate the funds raised.
In the past we have supported charities such as the Stars Appeal at Salisbury District Hospital, raising funds for the new Breast Cancer Unit, the Teenage Cancer Trust, KidsRights, the Malala Fund and Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
Our chosen charities for the year 2017 – 18 are:
- Cancer Research UK
- Serve On
- Julia’s House Children’s Hospice
