Charity Continues at Woodbridge School

15 Dec 23

As ever, our students, staff and parents have been supporting charities in various ways throughout the term, raising funds, donating gifts and supporting those who need it most.

Most recently Christmas Jumper day raised £219 for Home-Start Suffolk and meant the entire School sparkled for the majority of the day, with students wearing some fantastic efforts in terms of festive knits!

Our Christmas Fair saw visitors raise £212 in the bottle tombola. Thank you to everyone who brought in a bottle of some sort for the stall, it was incredibly popular as it always is!

One of the highlights of this term has been Harvest Festival in October; there was an overwhelming response to our request for donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank and we know this food has been distributed to those in our local community who are struggling right now.

The Christmas appeal for gifts for children spending Christmas at Great Ormond Street Hospital was also quite overwhelming; the kindness and generosity shown was what we have so gratefully come to expect from our students, parents and staff, and we know those gifts will mean the world.

In terms of House charities, there have been some changes this term, and our focus is strongly on our local community. Seckford House is now fundraising for Dora Brown, Willard for St Elizabeth Hospice, Annott have chosen to continue to raise funds for the Riding for the Disabled Association, and Burwell continue with Suffolk Wildlife; our chosen charities reflecting one of our core values of community.

House charity events continue, raising money for those chosen charities, this term we’ve seen a variety of events for this purpose, from bake sales to hot chocolate stalls and raffles.

We’ve also seen individual charitable efforts, demonstrating what kind and considerate young people we have around us, and a special mention to Year 7’s Isabella, Elsie and Pip who organised their own bake sale to raise money for those affected by the ongoing conflict in Israel and Palestine; selling baked goods and selling them at breaktime, the money raised will most certainly have helped people in times of severe crisis.

The totals aren’t in as we write this report, which is always a brilliant sign as it means money continues to come in – but we wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate and recognise all of our students and entire School community for their continued kindness and thoughtfulness.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to recognise the great many students supporting charity inside and outside of School.
