Abbotsholme School community supports many good causes throughout the year. Central to our belief and ethos is caring for others, and service to others. As a Round Square School, service to others is a key part of pupils' education at Abbotsholme.
Throughout the year we support a number of charities including:
- Stoke on Trent Food Bank (Halloween for Hunger)
- School in Kenya
- Macmillan Cancer Research
- Ashbourne Rescue Centre (ARC)
- Round Square charity work
- Samaritan Shoe Box Appeal
Charities that pupils and the school are currently supporting are:
- Walking With the Wounded (WWTW)) - pupils competing in the Devizes to Westminster Race are also using this marathon race to raise money for Walking With the Wounded following an inspirational talk from Guy Disney, amputee and North and South Pole Expedition team member for WWTW. Read more here!
- Brain Tumour Research
- CHICKS - is a national children’s charity, providing free, week-long respite breaks for disadvantaged children from all over the UK. The children, aged between 8 and 15, come to one of the charity’s three retreats in the countryside and by the sea, where they can spend the week having fun, relaxing and making new friends. CHICKS’ newest retreat, ‘Daleside’, is based in Derbyshire, near Ashbourne. The children come from a variety of backgrounds: they might be living in poverty; have been victims of abuse; or be young carers for sick and disabled relatives. At CHICKS, they have the chance to make positive childhood memories and enjoy new experiences, often for the first time.
Abbotsholme is working with CHICKS to support children from a variety of backgrounds.
