Charities

Following on from the phenomenal amount raised in Academic year 2017-2018 (see below), during the 2018 Autumn term, our whole school charity has been Falcon Support Services. This has culminated this half term with their Festive Shelter fundraising campaign, for which we have been a Campaign Champion to try to prevent homelessness locally over the Christmas period. Falcon Support Services told us that to provide a bed, shelter, food, rehabilitation and all other facilities supplied, for one person during December it would cost £938 and we hoped to support at least one person per year group. We aimed to try and raise enough to support one person per year group and although not every year group has quite made it, collectively we have raised enough for seven – such a great achievement!

There has been an amazing variety of events and we are very proud of the incredible amount of money staff and students have raised together. We have also seen some brilliant new fundraising ideas appear this term.

This term year 7 have held many charities events such as raffles, a movie night, cake and doughnut sales, sweets in a jar and let’s not forget the incredible Christmas fair run by 7RHS. As a year group they have raised a grand total of £635 – 7RHS were top fund raisers for the year group, raising £231.

Year 8 have also done some fantastic fundraising this term. including 8NZA’s very successful Christmas bash, a dodgeball match, a breakfast, a movie night, several sweet and cake sales and a netball shootout. They have raised £675 with 8NZA raising the most with £198.

With hot chocolate sales, raffles, sweet and cake sales and tombolas, Year 9 have done a great job of raising money for the Falcon Centre. 9MW raised the most this term with £159 and overall year 9 raised a grand total of £594.

Year 10 have held events such as a breakfast, the advent calendar raffle, a cookie dough sale and chocolate tombola raising a total of £286, with 10LNM being the top fundraisers with £107.

Year 11 have favoured cake sales for fundraising this term and a breakfast sale, raising a total of £464 with 11JES raising the most with £129.

Year 12 have been incredible in their fundraising this term with pizza and cake sales, a very successful dodgeball match and fantastic curry and quiz night, both with students from across the whole Loughborough Schools Foundation. 12NPS collected hundreds of toys for Charnwood Toy Appeal and of course the whole year group ran the Macmillan coffee morning which raised £322.  This term year 12 together have raised an amazing £1,048 with 12DC raising £317.

Year 12 and 13 together raised a fantastic £425 through their breakfast sale which was served by the Year 13 Prefect team.

Year 13 have done some very impressive fundraising with A LOT of pizza sales, classic cake and doughnut sales and have introduced new sales such as the Diwali food sale. They have raised an outstanding £1,483 with 13AMW raising nearly £400 towards the total.

LHS Staff, Central Services and Fairfield Catering Staff have also been incredibly generous this term, raising £1,200 by taking part in all of the non-uniform days and Macmillan. However, they also contribute at all of the pupil’s events by buying cakes and raffle tickets and generously give up their time to take part and help organise many events such as all the food sales, movie nights, breakfast sales and the curry night. Head of Languages, Mrs. Lee, ran the Robin Hood Half Marathon sponsored mainly by staff, for Cancer Research raising an incredible £900.

The collection after the Carol Service and Tableaux was in aid of the Festive Shelter Campaign and raised £796.

Staff and students collectively raised further funds for other charities this term such as Poppy sales for the British Legion which raised £910, we have held several non-uniform days, including ones for Jeans for Genes raising £600, Children in Need raising £578 and the Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children and the Staff Panto for the Falcon Centre, which has raised over £500. LHS students and staff took part in the carol singing in town with other members of LSF and organised by Loughborough Schools Music. They raised £467 for the local Rainbows Children’s Hospice.

These events would not happen without the fantastic support from teachers, support staff, charity reps and year 12 prefects with their tireless help with fundraising and organising events and also parents and families for all they contribute, but in particular the two astonishing Senior Charity Prefects, Katie and Mansi, whose commitment and passion to charity this term has been exceptional.

Next term each year group will vote for a charity to support, so we are looking forward to hearing which ones they will be and thinking up new fundraising ideas.

Our totals for this term are an incredible £6726 for the Falcon Support Centre and £4,262 for the many other charities we supported, giving us a total of an outstanding £11,001 –massively surpassing last Autumn terms grand total!
