Charity Giving

Charitable Giving at Cleeve Park School

Each year the student body is encouraged to raise funds for good causes. Some of this is for participating in specific fundraising events and other funds are raised throughout the year which are then donated to a selected group of charities. These charities are nominated by students, staff and parents on behalf of charities they are involved with. Then a small group of students decide which ones will be selected for that year.

September 2016 to July 2017

This years chosen charities include:

  • The NSPCC
  • Save the Children

 

September 2015 to April 2016
