Charitable giving and fundraising
Here at St Joseph's we take the call of charitable giving and fundraising very seriously and our Mini Vinnies and Chaplaincy are very involved in all the fundraising we do.
Sometimes acts of charity are not about what we can give in terms of money or goods but in time and we seek to balance these.
Due to the COVID19 restrictions we were unable to have our usual Christmas fair so we had to come up with some other ways of fundraising and decided to go ahead with our raffle. The class teachers nominated children who are excellent role models to come and help us draw the winning numbers.
Hearts for homes
This December we worked on the Hearts for Homes project which saw children in school decorate hearts to go to Care homes and let older people who are isolated because of the COVID19 pandemic to know someone is thinking of them
Children in need
This year we held a non-uniform day for Children in Need and raised £41.00 to help children in the UK.
