Supporting others has been a tradition at the Academy and over the last 4 years in our support for charities we have raised over £4,000!
Detailed below are some of the Charities we helped last year:
- McMillan Coffee Morning
- Poppy Appeal
- Text Santa
- Children in Need
- Red Nose Day / Sport Relief
- Race for Life (Cancer Research UK)
Every October we send our Harvest donations to The Padley Group, supporting people in the local community with complex needs such as homelessness, mental health issues, learning disabilities etc.
Children also kindly donate non-perishable items for the Derby Lions Christmas Appeal – which is then distributed to the Padley Group & Jericho House.
We have supported ‘Operation Christmas Child’. The generosity and support of our children and their parents & carers never ceases to amaze us and since 2009 over 600 boxes have been prepared and sent to the Charity from our Academy. In 2016, we supported the ‘Link to Hope Shoebox Appeal’, which has delivered smiles to thousands of people in Eastern Europe.
Since 2013 we are also proud to have sponsored and supported ‘Phiwa’, who is a girl in Swaziland, through the Challenge Ministries Swaziland Child Care Programme. They provide Phiwa with a loving home, keep her safe, give her an education and provide healthcare if required. Swaziland is one of the poorest countries in the world and your support makes a huge difference to Phiwa’s life.
