Here at Dalestorth we enjoy a variety of Fundraising projects… Not only does it support the needs of communities, it also encourages children to think of others before themselves and what it would like to be in another person's shoes.
We enjoy fundraising for needy causes such as: Children in Need, Comic Relief, Sport Relief, Berundi Bear, Macmillan, Water Aid , Sightsavers, John Eastwood Hospice, Kingsmill, The Powerful Pencil Case Challenge, NSPCC, Save the Children, Rainbows Children's Hospice etc and many more.

£380 for Macmillan - coffee afternoon
£550 for Children in Need
£218 for the NSPCC - Christmas Bobble Hat Day
102 Christmas Boxes sent for Operation Christmas Child

Fundraising for our own school and our children is also very dear to our hearts which is where money from the Autumn Fair, Easter Activities, Christmas Cards, Discos, Cake sales comes in. The money we have raised recently from your huge generosity has gone on..
- Subsidising trips and visitors
-Outdoor Play equipment
- We have lots planned for the outdoor area (money is being saved for this until we reach a big total)
Many thanks for your generosity as we completely depend on it.
All our work around Fundraising supports our promotion of British Values, Citizenship, SMSC and PSHE.
Last year we ran an Enterprise/Apprentice Week in school. This was to enhance the financial education aspect of our PSHE/SMSC Curriculum.
Each class was given a budget of £30 to purchase resources to make a product to sell.
The children’s challenge was then to sell as much of the merchandise as possible and make a profit. Selling of the products took place on the afternoon of Friday the 20th November from 3.00pm.
All monies were released back to the children for them to decide on purchases to make for their class.
Below you can see what each class made. The week was greatly enjoyed by all and we will be repeating it this year in 2016.

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon 2016
Mrs Hill, School Council and a team of parent volunteers are becoming experts in organising this for school. This year's Coffee Afternoon has raised a whopping £450! The most ever. A huge thank you for your generosity.
Our NSPCC Dress Down Day on 14th October 2016 raised £267. The NSPCC delivered two assemblies, one for KS1 and one for KS2 and a detailed workshop for Year's 5 & 6. All of the children have learnt about how to keep themselves safe and who they can turn to with worries. All children understand the different types of child abuse: Neglect, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse & Bullying and that none of these are ok.
