Charitable Fundraising

As a Catholic School charitable fundraising is a very important aspect of our mission. Our students are encouraged to support a wide range of charities including CAFOD. The students work as individuals, as part of their form, as members of the school council  and as a whole school to raise money. Recent projects include:-

  • bedraceThe Knaresborough Bed Race. £1,205 in sponsorship support for the Children’s Heart Surgery Unit at Leeds General Infirmary. “A real team effort,” commented a delighted Headteacher Mr Pritchard. “We are committed as a school to the local community and it showed on the day of the Bed Race.”
  • Harvest Tin Tower – in 2016 over 1,000 cans were donated to St Pio Priory Soup Kitchen in Bradford.
  • Macmillan Coffee Morning – A total of £571 was raised in 2016.
  • Wear Red Day for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund at Leeds General Infirmary.  In February 2017, a total of £703.45 was raised for this worthy cause.
