Charities we support
At East Haddon CE Primary School, we are pleased to work with a number of charities each year.
We have an annual appeal to support the 'Emmanuel 2000' school, which was established in 2004 to provide education for approximately 20 Nepalese children with learning difficulties in Thaiba, in the Katmandu valley. Read more here.
Northampton Hope Centre
Last year we were pleased to welcome a representative from the Hope Centre into school to share with us the work they do with people in need of help and support in our area. 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 are currently collecting for the Hope Centre as part of our Harvest collection and they are particularly in need of tinned meat, tinned fish, tinned vegetables and toilet rolls. Read more about their work on their website: http://northamptonhopecentre.org.uk/
MacMillan Cancer Support
Our annual MacMillan Coffee Morning at East Haddon Village Hall, organised by the Friends of the School, did very well this year, raising a much needed £595.70 for MacMillan Cancer Support, helping them to support people living with cancer, from diagnosis through to treatment and beyond. Find out more from their website: https://www.macmillan.org.uk/
BBC Children in Need
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. Last year's appeal raised approximately £97. Check out this year's fundraising ideas page: https://bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/fundraisinghub
British Legion Poppy Appeal
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'.
