Brighstone CE Aided Primary School (registered charity no. 307389) sponsors several local causes as well as international ventures each year.
Each November we support Children In Need by encouraging the children to join in with a themed costume day, donating money as they do so. We also do the same for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day each Spring.
Every year we also take part in World Book Day, in which we raise money for Book Aid International, as well as our local Rotary Shoe Box Appeal whereby shoe-boxes are filled with goodies for disadvantaged children in Albania, Montenegro, Moldova and Romania.
Classes also raise money for charities as part of their topics; for example, Year 2 recently raised money for Freshwater Independent Lifeboat, and Year 1 and 2 raised money for The National Trust.
We take part in the MacMillan Coffee Morning each September, raising funds for a charity that supports those in need of specialist nursing care. And each year, we regularly have many children taking part in Walk The Wight to raise money for the island’s Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
Brighstone Primary is also a member of the Unity Lottery – join up to win a cash prize and a percentage of your payment goes directly to the school as your chosen charity.
