SUPPORTING ST CATHERINE’S HOSPICE
Schools and colleges are a vital part of our community. St Catherine’s Hospice schools fundraising projects offer students vital real-world skills to complement their education. They also provide exposure to hospice care which can be a huge support if students or family members need hospice support in future.
Schools fundraising for St Catherine’s also benefit from the chance to connect with a much loved local charity, which many students and teachers may already feel close to.
There are a huge range of ways that schools can support St Catherine’s. Fundraising projects include:
Students have a team mentor from Natwest bank who helps them turn an initial investment of £50 into as much fundraised money as possible. This is an excellent way to gain real-world business and organisational skills, perfect for CVs and university applications.
A great way for students to enjoy themselves while supporting an important local cause. Non-uniform days in particular can be organised easily for great effect.
