Each year, Westbourne supports specific charities; usually an international, national and local organisation, which are chosen by the children.
Last year (2013-14) we raised an amazing £80,000 for charity! This sum includes money raised for our four school charities - St Wilfrid's Hospice, Friends of Aldingbourne Trust, School in a Bag and Macmilan Cancer Care - as well as money raised for Children in Need, the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Movember. Wow! That is a new record and something for the school community to feel very proud about.
This year (2014-15) we are supporting one local, one national and one international charity:
- Parents & Carers Support Organisation (www.pacso.org.uk) - provides a wide variety of fun and inclusive play activities for disabled children and their siblings, giving respite care for their parents and carers in West Sussex.
- Dwarf Sports Association UK (www.dsauk.org) - to make regular sporting opportunities accessible and enjoyable to anyone and everyone of restricted growth in the United Kingdom.
- War Child (www.warchild.org.uk) - provides life-changing support to children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.
