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. 
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: 

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! 

Harvest 2018  

Year 1 lead our Harvest Celebrations this year and supported the Clevedon Foodbank by asking families to bring into suitable non-perishable food items. They also celebrated this wonderful time of year with families in their Harvest Assembly. 

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. 

Luke's Army 2019 £134.83 

Along with other local schools, the pupils dressed in orange to support the Luke’s Army appeal. St Francis' raised £134.83 to support children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. 

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. Children swapped their school uniform for sports clothes and danced non-stop for the morning to tracks such as Paradise by George Ezra and A Million Dreams from the Greatest Showman 
Mary's Meals 2017 £67.04 
Funds were raised at our Christmas Services and Celebrations and whilst the children word Christmas Jumpers. The money was used to help feed the hungary.  
The children supported this charity on World Cancer Day by buying and wearing CLIC Sargent wristbands. 

CLIC SARGENT 2019 £90
