Us Helping The Community
Pupils and staff at Bradley Barton enjoyed fundraising for Comic Relief 2023. We dressed up as superheroes and in red clothing to celebrate raising money for Red Nose Day. We made red noses, told jokes, had a lunch time dance party and competed in a red nose and spoon race. Thank you to the Bradley Barton pupils, staff and community. We raised a total of £197.50.
Pupils and staff at Bradley Barton enjoyed fundraising for Children in Need 2022. We dressed in our pyjamas, made spotty hats for our spotty lunch party and joined in with the Moodbusters live launch. Staff competed in a Bake Off and the school council judged and sold the baked goods, alongside a used book sale. Thank you to the Bradley Barton pupils, staff and community. We raised a total of £181.78.
Staff & Pupils
Bradley Barton School
Please thank everyone for the donation of food from your Harvest Festival Collection.
It is especially good to know that your pupils are so aware that many in their local area are struggling and that they want to help them in this way.
Sadly, we are seeing a steady increase in the number of people coming to us for assistance and are currently also supporting a number of Ukrainian families who are living locally. We are providing food, toiletry and cleaning pack as well as home starts to referred families.
We rely heavily on the generosity of the local community together with the dedication of our volunteers and manager to enable us to continue to support those in greatest need in our area. Our thanks go to all our supporters.
