Charity cheques presented at Assembly

Charity cheques presented at Assembly

At Assembly this morning we were delighted to present the proceeds of our retiring collection at the Christmas Carol Service to representatives from three charities which the school supports.

In total nearly £400 was raised at the event in December and the funds were split evenly between the three worthy causes.

We welcomed a representative from the Forefront Community Church in Chard to receive our first cheque, Forefront run the Lord’s Larder which provides emergency food supplies for people in need in the area. Our second cheque was collected by Father Jeff of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Chard, where the school regularly holds concerts and services. Our final cheque was presented to Richard Lucas, Deputy Head at Chard, who helps to run a charitable trust which raises funds for Nalwanza School in Uganda.

Our thanks to everyone for their generous donations to these causes.
