Charity at SPCS
Here at St. Paul's Cathedral School we are all very aware of how lucky we are.
Here are some of the charity fundraising and other initiatives that we are involved with.
Flushing away poverty, one toilet at a time.
SPCS has sponsored toilets in Malawi and Myanmar. 2.3 billion people, one third of the worlds population, do not have a loo!
Inadequate toilet facilities are a major cause of disease, which in turn limits opportunities for education, stifles a community's economic options and leads to even greater poverty.
You too can sponsor a loo, here: https://www.toilettwinning.org/
Our Pre-Prep Harvest Assembly, led by Mrs Carmichael-Line, took place in the Cathedral. Pictures from the event will be on display here soon!
Pupils from all forms brought up items to represent the fabulously generous donations that we were able to give to The Spitalfields Crypt Trust. Thank you to everyone for their gifts.
Lynn Cox - A speaker on behalf of Guide Dogs UK - and her dog Danny visited the school to tell us all about the ways that donations are used to train and match up dogs with blind and partially sighted people across the UK.
Guide Dogs UK is our chosen charity for our fund raising this year.
On Friday 20th September, we held a non-uniform day in support of Jeans for Genes which raises funds for the Genetic Disorders UK charity.
All pupils brought in donations for the privilege of not having to wear their uniform. This is always a popular annual event!
Wonderful pictures from the Orphanage in Ghana that we support through donations of uniform, bags and equipment.
