Helping Others

At Ropley C.E Primary School, we support a number of charitable events throughout the year.  Although we support the national fundraisers, such as Children In Need, Sport Relief, Comic Relief and Cancer Research, we also support smaller, more local charities such as the Foodbank and the Shoebox Scheme.  

Global Neighbours Citizenship

Our School Council have chosen to support Wessex Rotary Shoebox Scheme this year.  Thanks to our local community and our parents, we donated a fantastic 44 boxes which will be sent to disadvantaged and displaced children in Eastern Europe.  Our Councillors also led a Whole School Worship to tell the children all about the scheme, before handing over the boxes to James from Wessex Rotary.

Alton Foodbank - 2023

This Harvest we again supported Alton Foodbank which is part of the Trussell Group.  We collected a huge amount of food (117kg!) and were delighted to be able to invite our parents and grandparents to our Harvest Service at our beautiful, rebuilt St Peter's Church.

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal - 2023

We are delighted to again be able to support the Poppy Appeal.  Our children were able to purchase child friendly items as well as the traditional paper poppy.  We are delighted that we raised £159.16 for this year's appeal.

Abby's Heroes - 2023

Our children and staff again wore Christmas Jumpers to support Abby's Heroes, which is a local children's cancer charity that supports children and their families.  We raised £137.35 for this worthy cause.

Children In Need - 2024

We were pleased to support this national charity again.  The children all wore their 'Pudsey Bear' items and we raised a brilliant £189.87.  A special thank you to Frogs for doing the bucket shake on our behalf at the school gates.  


Great Ormand Street Hospital

Our retiring collection from this year's Year 4 & 5 production of Peter Pan was donated to Great Ormand Street Hospital.  JM Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, gave the rights to the book to GOSH in 1929.  Thanks to our audiences generosity we were able to make a donation of £128.00
