Raising Funds for The Children's Society
A message from our Y11 Chapel Volunteers…
In the past few weeks, the three of us have been working with the Chaplain to support this year’s Chapel Harvest Charity - The Children’s Society, with more of a local focus.
The Children’s Society, a national charity with a local branch based in Coventry, helps young people who have had an unimaginably hard start to life. A more specific area of what they do is looking after young, Syrian refugees who have lost their parents and ended up in England with no one else to look after them. They have come here with nothing.
Our Chaplain was contacted by an ambassador for the charity, who asked if Warwick School might be able to collect and donate old sports equipment to them. The Chaplain invited our input on the decision, as Chapel Volunteers, and we thought that this would be a great initiative, as Sport is such an integral aspect of all of the schools in the Foundation.
Last week, during Chapel, we spoke to all the students including our Junior School boys about this project, and about the House Competition we have set up to help us collect this sports equipment. The responses we have received from students, staff and teachers from across the Foundation has been great!
We were hoping that during half-term you might be able to collect some old trainers and sports boots, although we would be really grateful for anything, like tennis rackets, footballs and hockey sticks etc.,
and give these to your children to bring into school – in accordance with the plan and format for collection, as set by their respective school. For Warwick School the drop-off point is the corridor by the Chapel, where six clearly marked wheelie bins have been set up , labelled with each of the school houses.
A huge thanks in advance!
Will, Ed and Josh (Year 11 Chapel Volunteers)
