Fashion Show for the aid of Human Care Syria

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.

To support this worthy cause, we are organising a Bollywood Themed Fashion Show that includes, food, dancing, live DJ, henna and runway shows. It will be an amazing night and we’d love to see you there supporting this charity!

Introduction to the Charity Committee

Hi, we are the charity committee.

Our names are Zona, Amelia, Asraa, Sophia, Mahjabin, Bella, Evie, Olivia, Laura and Sadie and we will be your charity committee for this year. We are all very passionate about helping others and are looking forward to organising key charity events at AGGS. Last year, the school was very successful in raising money and we hope that this coming year will be just the same!

Upcoming events include the Macmillan Coffee Morning Cake Sale and the Harvest Festival. We would really appreciate any cake donation for the cake sale on the 28th September.

We would like to encourage everyone at the school to donate to the charities that we support – even just a few pennies can make a big difference if enough people contribute. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!

We Love Manchester Emergency Fund Collection

Following the recent terror incident at Manchester Arena, we decided to raise money in school for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. To do this, we held charity collection buckets at the end of the year group assemblies to collect any loose change from pupils. This proved to be very successful as we managed to raise an astounding £500 in total! The money raised will be used to provide for those affected by the devastating incident in Manchester and their families at this difficult time. We would like to thank everyone for their donations!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of those who were affected by the terrible incident on Monday evening.

As a way of showing our support The Charity Committee would like to make a donation on behalf of AGGS to “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund” set up by Manchester City Council and The British Red Cross to provide funds for the families of victims of the incident.

If you would like donate, collection buckets will be available at Reception and all assemblies throughout the week after half term.

When You Wish Upon A Star

When You Wish Upon A Star

This year in the Charity Committee we have arranged a series of events to raise money. These included Charity Day, where we had a talent show, a pantomime and lots of stalls packed full with games and food. This whole day was a huge success and we raised an amazing £3,400!

We also held a pancake sale which went down incredibly well and showed itself to be extremely popular as we raised a super £250!

There have been a number of bake sales over the year in which we have always raised a very good sum of money. This year we have raised a staggering total of £7000 of which we presented a cheque worth £1000 to a charity named When You Wish Upon A Star.

When You Wish Upon A Star is a very worthwhile charity who work to grant the wishes of children living with terminal illnesses. They believe that every child deserves to smile and these wishes allow the family to put their child’s illness on hold as they have fun and create precious memories.

This term we are fundraising for The British Heart Foundation. Our first fundraising event is The Valentine cake sale on Wednesday 8th February. All cake donations will be gratefully received, particularly if they’re pink! Pink sweets will also be on sale.

The British Heart Foundation –British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation is a charity organisation in the United Kingdom. It is the single biggest funder of cardiovascular research in the UK. The British Heart Foundation was founded in 1961 by a group of medical professionals, who were concerned about the increasing death rate from cardiovascular disease. They wanted to fund extra research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease.
