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 every year 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......
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
- The outdoor area
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.

A very big thank you and well done for putting together 77 Christmas Shoe Boxes containing a whole manner of special Christmas gifts for those children who would otherwise receive nothing.

During October the children were busy making merchandise for their annual Enterprise Sale. The idea behind Enterprise week is to support the teaching of Financial Education to the children. Each class is given a budget of £30 to purchase resources to make a product to sell. The children’s challenge is then to sell as much of the merchandise as possible and make a profit. The Enterprise Trophy goes to the class who makes the most.
All monies made will be released back to the children for them to decide on purchases to make for their class throughout the year. Last year the children spent their money on all kinds of things from pets, to games and free trips. This year's class products included:
Kittens - Plants
Lions- & Tigers – Pizzas, Cakes, Friendship Bracelets and Hair Accessories
Bobcat Class – Christmas Decorations & Mashmallow Snowmen
Panther Class- Decorated Tealights, Candy Cane Reindeer and Halloween Jelly
Puma Class – Reindeer Food and Hot Chocolate Spoons
Cougar Class-Snowflake Christmas Decorations
Jaguar Class- Christmas Decorations, Wool baubles & Snakes
Leopard Class- Fruit Crumbles
The sale was a great success and the children now have plenty of money in their pots! Visit our News page and the children's class pages to see photos of the event.

Berundi Bear Picnic Fundraiser
We all enjoyed buying a bear, having a bear biscuit and drink with our friends and in the process raising £160 for Berundi. Berundi is one of the poorest areas in Africa and for every bear sold it is a brick to build much needed schools. Schools provide valuable education and way out of poverty.
