Our School Charity

This year we have also chosen a local charity to support, following a suggestion made by one of our pupils. We thought it was a great idea of his to work with a charity in our community over the academic year! We are now linked with Alabare, a local Christian charity that supports vulnerable, homeless and marginalised people.  Alabare help them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life. For more information visit: https://www.alabare.co.uk/

How do we support Alabare?

  • Our Harvest appeal was donated to Alabare. We collected a huge amount of food and presented it to Laura, their Community Engagement Officer, at our Harvest festival.  

                      

 

  • We had a collection at all of our Christmas events and have donated this to Alabare... we raised £310!! 

 

 

  •            

 

  • Laura and Roofus from Alabare delivered an assembly about their charity and who/how they support in our local area. School Council pupils are now planning some sponsored events.

                    

  

  • More than 200 people slept overnight in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral - to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless in the city. The annual 'big sleep' has been held for more than a decade - this year one of our parents, Mrs Peska, braved the cold!
