Charity Update

The Froebelian School, Horsforth Raises £1000s for Local, National and International Charities.

In only six months, The Froebelian School Horsforth, Leeds has smashed its fundraising targets for the year raising over £4000.
The leading Independent Preparatory School for children aged 3-11 years is raising money for Save The Children as its designated charity for the year as well as supporting Ukraine Crisis charities, Jeans for Genes, Children in Need, Comic Relief, #HelloYellow and The Royal British Legion.
One Year 3 pupil has single handedly raised over £1400 for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal run by The British Red Cross Society, by committing to running 20 miles in March.
Headteacher, Catherine Dodds, said: “I am unbelievably proud of how the whole Froebelian community has come together and embraced the fundraising this year.  It has been a tremendous effort from individual pupils,  group efforts from pupils, staff, parents, friends and the FPTA.  It is an astounding achievement to have raised such a huge amount.”
In addition, this year so far, Froebelian has also collected 100s of food items for The Horsforth Live at Home Scheme.
Mrs Dodds added:  “We believe that all children benefit from a close involvement with charity, whether it be  individually, in their classes, houses or as a complete school. It helps them to understand the value of helping others and the importance of citizenship both locally and across the world.  All of which sits well with the ethos of the school, particularly our original school motto of “Serve and Endeavour”.  We also ensure that the children develop organisational skills through fundraising, complementing the growth of their social awareness and an appreciation of the value of money, and the effort that goes into earning it.”
