Throughout the year at Charleston Academy we support a number of Charities in a variety of ways. During 2016 our school and community raised the huge sum of £8,956.03 for all of our chosen charities. This includes fundraising done by our YPI students (but NOT the £3k award to the winners). We also raised around £9,000 for our own Sponsored Walk. This is not included either.
Whether large or small, each fundraising venture is important in helping all of our young people understand the needs of others, the hard work done by others in our community to support those with needs and the value of money in today’s society.
During 2016 some of the charity events included: Children in Need (£850), MacMillan (£167), Blytheswood (£2271.90), Advocacy Highland (£1,215.35), Children 1st (£2250) and many more.
Well done and thank you to everyone in our school community who supports all of these events.
