Donations from Chapel Collections

Donations given after Chapel Services throughout the year are split between several beneficiaries.

Aims

We collect voluntary donations at Chapel services throughout the year, when parents and guests are invited. We aim to split these between worthy charities.

Background

Chapel and Church gatherings usually allow for the opportunity to give to the Church; here at School we collect and give the money raised to various charities to help improve our community and that of others.

Resources

Our pupils have buckets or plates on the exit doors of Chapel after services such as Remembrance, Carol Services, Harvest Festival and Leavers' services.
