Students raise £500 carol singing in Altrincham for St Annes’ Hospice

Continuing from the previous post about the group of Y12 students who sang for charity just before Christmas, see is the response of the St. Annes’ Hospice volunteer coordinator:

I would just like to inform you about the fantastic charity work that was carried out by a number of your pupils, Flora W and some of her friends voluntarily came to sing carols on Friday 22nd December at Starbucks in Altrincham during their lunch time to help raise money for St Ann’s Hospice.
They were absolutely brilliant and very professional too! They helped us raise a brilliant total of £500.00 that afternoon and they really were fantastic and an asset to your school.

Well done to Flora and her team!

Human Care Syria, a charity for Charity Day

Human Care SyriaHuman Care Syria is a charity that encompasses the values of humanitarian aid without borders. Their projects stand for providing emergency humanitarian and medical aid, but more importantly, long-term projects which can alleviate poverty and suffering through educating and empowering individuals.

Human Care Syria has carried out projects such as:

  • rehabilitation
  • women’s hygiene and sanitation
  • emergency relief
  • child development
  • food security
  • education

These are core values that we stand for as a school and are taught as we are growing up. We can relate to this charity’s beliefs and would love to help them! Education and empowerment are essential in improving the quality of life, improving employment rates and most importantly, improving healthcare. By helping refugees in Syria, we can pass on these values and make a difference however big or small.

Singing at Starbucks

Last Tuesday lunchtime, 12th December, a small group of singers went along to Starbucks to help out the St Ann’s hospice fundraisers.

St Ann’s hospice were grateful and said that they received more donations from passers-by while we were singing. We all got into the festive spirit, singing a variety of traditional carols as well as Have Yourself a merry little Christmas and our favourite, Carol of the Bells!

Mustard Tree – another Charity for Charity Day

Mustard Tree: Combatting Poverty - Preventing HomelessnessPoverty and homelessness in Greater Manchester are some of the main issues our city is trying to combat. But still 600,000 people and 9100 children live in poverty and it remains a primary challenge. Mustard Tree is a brilliant charity which since 1994 has transformed the lives of people in Greater Manchester who are trapped in poverty or homelessness. The charity really makes a difference to these people’s lives making them feel human and worthwhile once again. They provide them with well needed food parcels and furniture and help those who are struggling to gain the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their full potential. They provide them with job opportunities and programs which enable them to independently gain employment in the future. The money we raise as a school will really help this fantastic charity to successfully do this and help more disadvantaged people of our community in the future.

Healing Hearts – one of Charities for Charity Day

‘In October 2015 my twin girls, Martha and Ivy, were born. Ivy was born with Transposition of the great arteries, a complex congenital heart defect which means that the top of her heart was the wrong way round with the wrong connections to her lungs and the rest of the body. Ivy was transferred to Alder Hey children’s hospital and had open heart surgery at 8 weeks old, which started the repair process and was ‘fixed’ in January this year. Every year around 4000 babies are born with a heart defect in the UK our children’s hospitals have some of the best cardiology departments in the world. We are so lucky that we have such an incredible and progressive NHS to ensure that children like Ivy are given the best chance of a full life.
Through our time at Alder Hey we learned that one of the wonderful surgeons, Ram Dhannapuneni, along with some of the nurses, frequently gives up his own time and skills for free to Healing Little Hearts, a small charity that sends teams of volunteers from PICU and cardiology departments out to hospitals to treat the poorest of children who come from families that do not have the resources to pay for their healthcare.

Healing Little HeartsHealing Little Hearts (HLH) was launched as an official registered charity in 2007 provides Free Heart Surgery to those that need it the most. Their work started out in India but recently we have branched out into Africa (Kenya, Tanzania), Maurituis and Malaysia.
This wonderful charity is working tirelessly to makes the lives of those born in places where their need for surgery is not always met, have the chance to lead a full, happy and healthy life.

Their aim is to continue branching out and the money raised to support camps ensures that each team stays for one week and operates on between 10-12 children per trip; the precise numbers varies. It also allows the team to train junior doctors and nurses in children’s heart care with the eventual aim of helping the centres to become more self-sustaining.

This wonderful charity is working tirelessly to makes the lives of those born in places where their need for surgery is not always met, have the chance to lead a full, happy and healthy life, just like Ivy.’
