At St Barnabas we love to show our Christian Values of generosity, friendship, respect and service to others through a variety of fundraising events over the year. Our children often come to us with their own fundraising ideas and our Rotakids and Friends of St Barnabas (FOSB) PTFA also fundraise for the school, local and national charities. Please see our events for information about the next fundraising events.
So far this year we have supported the following charities:
Hello Yellow Day for Young Minds- Friday 8th October 2021
Our whole school family dressed in yellow to brighten up our school, raise awareness of mental health and raise money for Young Minds. Our Year 4 class led our Hello Yellow Day Worship and really got the message across and raised awareness of mental health. We are so proud at St Barnabas to say we are working hard to make a difference to young people’s mental health.
The Brain Tumour Charity
Georgie in Year 3 took on an amazing challenge to raise money in memory of her Daddy who passed away last year from a brain tumour. She has raised over £3000 for The Brain Tumour Charity from her paddle, pedal and plod challenge. Children in Year 4 were so moved by Georgie's story in Worship that they decided they wanted to help to support The Brain Tumour charity too. They created a list of names for a giant teddy and children chose names for a donation of 50p and a chance to win the teddy.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
It was wonderful to be able to have parents and grandparents back in school for our Macmillan coffee morning and afternoon tea sessions. Due to the overwhelming generosity of our parents donating cakes and money donations, we raised an amazing £398.23. Thank you so much for your support of such an important cause, one of which is close to the hearts of many of our staff and parents who have lost loved ones to cancer.
