Charities we support
At East Haddon CE Primary School, we are pleased to work with a number of charities each year.
BBC Children in Need 2020
We are pleased to support the Children in Need appeal each year, often by asking the children to wear their spottiest or most colourful clothes in return for a suggested donation amount. This year we wore our pyjamas and raised £108.96. Take a look at our gallery!

British Legion Poppy Appeal 2020
We sell poppies every November in school to support the British Legion's 'vital support for the Armed Forces community'. They support 'veterans and their families in debt and emergency situations'. We managed to sell lots of poppies and wristbands in school this year, but you can also donate online via the British Legion's online shop: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/ways-to-give/shop/poppy-shop.

Following our 'Speak Out. Stay Safe' assembly, we raised £874.85 for the NSPCC, to help more children stay safe from harm. Many thanks to everyone that took part in our sponsored rainbow run.
Northampton Hope Centre 2019
Hope provides ‘access to high quality, healthy food’ through their day centre and food club, which is ‘offered in a positive, fair and dignified manner to people in need’. We were pleased to support the Hope Centre at Christmas time - many thanks to all for their generous donations of essential items.
