Charities

Charity work is a key part of our development at Copp School and every year we discuss which charities we would like to support so that everyone is on board.  We always try to make these charities child-related so that our children can take ownership of their fundraising.

The Junior Leadership Team decided that their charity this year would be Dementia; this was agreed partly after we had visited Bowgreave Rise Home for the Elderly but also because of our own children's experience of this. 

So far we have raised money for local charities such as:

Age UK
The local children's hospice - Brian House
Rock FM - Cash for Kids coin collection

We have also raised money for more global charities such as:

Sports/Comic Relief
Children in Need
Save the Children
Macmillan Cancer
Fair Trade
Malaria Worldwide raising money to buy malaria nets
Deaf Awareness
Wateraid UK

Last year we also worked with one of our mums to collect and send uniforms to Africa - it was lovely to see a little bit of Copp in the wider world!
