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 Mission Christmas.  

Alton Foodbank 

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 once again be able to invite our parents and grandparents to our Harvest Service at the Parish Hall.

For more information on how you can support the foodbank please visit their website: https://alton.foodbank.org.uk/

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

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 despite the Covid-19 restrictions we still raised £267.71 for the 2021 appeal.  Every class watched Rev Clare's Remembrance Service via Zoom and took part in a minutes silence at 11am.

Mission Christmas

This year, we were again a donation centre for Mission Christmas which is a local initiative that supports those families in our area where Christmas is a luxury they just cannot afford.  Our parents and local residents donated a huge pile of gifts which Charters Estate Agents, Alresford, very kindly collected from us to add to their own donations.

Abby's Heroes

This year, 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 £120.60 for this worthy cause.

Children In Need

We were pleased to support this national charity again this year.  The children all wore their 'Pudsey Bear' items and we raised a brilliant £191.27.  A special thank you to Frogs for doing the bucket shake on our behalf at the school gates, especially Julie Stroud who donned the amazing Frog costume!
