Charity amount to date: £1,997.11
School Fundraising: £901.62
We had a Cinema Night for the children after school to raise much needed money for the School Fund. The children watched the film 'Minions: The Rise of Gru' on a big screen in School, with a popcorn snack and juice drink included in the ticket price, and we raised a massive £901.62!! The film was chosen by the school's Arts Council as a film the children would really like to see.
Without events like this taking place the school would not have the money for gifts for children, such as Christmas presents, and the special mugs that each child received as a memento of the King's Coronation this year, so we are deeply appreciative of your support, thank you!!

With the continuing restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic, fundraising proved to be a bit of a challenge again this year. But, we were fortunate enough to be involved in Keech Hospice's Big Trunk Trail, and all our fundraising this academic year went to the Keech as a local charity.

Total Charity Fundraising: £1944.92
Total School Fundraising: £1043.07
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic causing so much disruption to the school year, we still managed to raise an impressive amount of money for various charities including: The Royal British Legion, Children in Need, the Luton & Dunstable Helipad Appeal, the NSPCC and Sport Relief.
The money raised for the School Fund was put towards further improvements to the Year R outdoor play area.
March 2023 update: We were contacted by Luton and Dunstable Hospital's fundraising team to inform us that, due to the expansion of the Emergency Department at the hospital, the plan to proceed with the Helipad provision has been put on hold for the foreseeable future so fundraising for the Helipad Appeal has been stopped. Instead we were asked if the money we raised for the Helipad (£422.61) could instead be put towards a new fundraising initiative called the Little Feet Appeal, which is based around the maternity services at the hospital, and we of course said yes to this request.
