Our last charity event before lockdown was for Wear It Pink!
Charity work has always been a very important part of the work the School Council chooses to do and we support many different charities throughout the year. The School Council chooses different local charities to support each year at regular times in the school year such as Rochdale Foodbank and Springhill Hospice. Our last foodbank collection was in the Autumn term in collaboration with Holy Trinity Church during our Harvest festival and sadly, due to school closures our annual January collection has had to be postponed.
Due to current lockdown restrictions, we are disappointed that for the second year running we will not be able to hold our annual Holy Trinity's Got Talent competition as this usually raises close to £1,000 for 2 charities close to our heart - DSWest Pennine (local Down's Syndrome support group) and Once Upon a Smile, a charity that supports children through bereavement. Just before lockdown last year in March 2020, we sold boxes and boxes of Gingerbread socks and came to school in odd socks to celebrate World Down Syndrome, thanks to your wonderful support and generosity we were able to raise £490 for DSWest Pennine and are hoping that these biscuits will be available this year and hope to sell them if we are all back in school together.
We would like to say thank you for all your continued support with all our chosen charities, we are always so thankful for your generosity and are looking forward to supporting some charities once we are all back in school to keep making a difference to children and families in our local area.
