Charitable Giving 

Blood Bikers 2019 - £343.93 

The children loved seeing the Blood Bikers arrive in style earlier in the week to collect the money we had raised for them. 

Parcels for the homeless 

Thank you for all the donations that have made parcels of clothing, toiletries and chocolate treats. Thank you to the parents who contributed gifts and well done to the Prayer Team who wrapped the presents and organised the collection. 
As a caring School, we have been thinking of others, either by raising money or sending in gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Below you will find information about some of the good causes we have supported this year: 

Australian Bush Fire 2020 - £402.78 

Year 6 pupils raised nearly £400 for the Red Cross Australian Bush Fire Appeal. The children decided to hold a cake sale after hearing about the terrible fires. They wanted to do something to help put out the fires and make life a little better for all the people and creatures affected. A spectacular amount of money was raised and so many cakes were donated that they enough to hold a second cake sale! 

Comic Relief 2019 - £225.21 

Pupils enjoyed a day of fun and fundraising as we joined the nation in supporting the Comic Relief Charity. Pupils organised a number of activities, including 'wear something red to school', a football penalty shoot out and a 'design a red nose' colouring competition. A special mention needs to go to our year 1 pupils who were the first to use our brand new cooking area to bake cakes for Comic Relief, which they sold after school to their parents, raising £53.62. Also, our year 5 pupils who raised a fantastic £36.57 selling comics they had written. Well done to them all! 

Christmas 2019 Donations 

Thank you for all your generous donations at the KS1 Nativity and KS2 Carol Service. We are delighted to donate £564.14 to WaterAid 

Harvest 2019  

The children at St Francis Primary School in Nailsea have been supporting the charity “Mission Together” an organisation which encourages “children to help children” by raising money for overseas educational, medical and welfare projects. The school organised a “Rainbow-Themed Week” and invited the children to create a "School of many colours”. There was a Rainbow Raffle, with each class donating prizes matching the colours of the rainbow; a “Harvest Breakfast” where chocolate brioche buns were on sale as children arrived at school and a Recycled Rainbow Bonnet competition where the children created a “Rainbow Bonnet” out of recycled materials and took part in a bonnet parade. In total, over £500 was raised to help children in the poorest parts of the world. The pictures show the Harvest Breakfast, the Rainbow Raffle prize winners and the Recycled Rainbow Bonnets. 

Asian Animals 2018 £233.50 

As part of our Feast of St Francis' celebrations, a team of year 6 children and a very helpful mum raised a total of £233.50 for the Animals Asia charity. For a small donation, children come to school dressed in something to do with our environment - we saw many animals, explorers and vets! The year 6 pupils also invited the children to come and decorate a cake or biscuit. 

Mission Together 2018 £68.17 

The school decided to use its first ‘Mile and Day’ event to raise funds for Mission Together’s appeal to support refugee children in Jordan. The pupils raised £68.17 which will go a long way towards funding a drink and snack for every child in one refugee school for the year. 

Lent 2019 - Danceathon £1397.25 

This year, our annual Lenten Sponsored event raised funds for a local charity called ‘Borderlands’, which supports refugees living Bristol. The children took part in a sponsored Danceathon, led by a specialist dance teacher.
