Charities we support
At East Haddon CE Primary School, we are pleased to work with a number of charities each year.
Helping the people of Ukraine
Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been turned upside down, especially the children. Our pupils have all designed a sunflower - the
national flower of Ukraine - bearing our thoughts, hopes and prayers for people
affected by the war in Ukraine.
Thanks to your generous donations, we have raised £181 for the Disasters Emergency Committee: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal
Many thanks also to the recent Year 6 Cake and Bracelet Sale after school, which raised a fantastic £210 for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Very well done to the pupils that organised this and thank you to everyone for supporting this good cause.
Red Nose Day 2022
This year we came to school with 'crazy hair and a joke to share' and raised £78.80 for Comic Relief. Everyone came to school looking bright and cheery. Thanks everyone! https://www.comicrelief.com/what-your-money-does
Community Spirit in Year 6!
Very well done to our Year 6 pupils who organised an after school cake sale to raise money for two very good causes. They raised £122 in total, making £61 for Children in Need and £61 for MacMillan Cancer Support. Well done everyone!
BBC Children in Need 2021
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 £101.70! Check out their fundraising page: https://bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/fundraisinghub
British Legion Poppy Appeal 2021
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 bought lots of poppies and wristbands in school this year, and raised £156.50 for this good cause.

MacMillan Cancer Support 2021
Whilst it didn't take quite the same form this year, the Friends of the School managed to raise £46.94 for this excellent cause, by selling cakes in the school playground after school. Thank you! MacMillan Cancer Support helps to support people living with cancer, from diagnosis through to treatment and beyond.

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.
