Our School Charity

As a school, one of our values is to 'make a difference' and impact positively on people in our community. 

Our Vision and Values | Westerhope Primary School 

 

Each year, families, children and staff nominate local charities they would like us to support. The whole school votes and we choose a charity to support for the school year. 

 

Previously we have supported:

- Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter Newcastle Dog & Shelter – Saving lives in the North East (dogandcatshelter.com) 

- 52 Lives Welcome to 52 lives - 52 Lives (52-lives.org) 

 

This year we are supporting the Tiny Lives Trust.

https://www.tinylives.org.uk/who-we-are/ 

 

Tiny Lives supply items, funds, staff specialists and support to the RVI Neonatal Unit in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, helping to make the Neonatal experience a little easier and more comfortable for parents, babies, siblings and family.  Once you become part of their Neonatal family, you have their support – forever.

They are an independent charity, so all funds are raised by generous supporters, they receive no government funding and need to raise £350,000 a year to maintain their services.

 

How are we supporting Tiny Lives?

We are fundraising and raising awareness for the fantastic work Tiny Lives do and have done for many of our own families. We hope to raise £1000 this year!

 

So far we have:

- had two raffles

- a non-uniform day

- asked our community to make donations and fill our 'shakers' during whole 

   school events. 

 

We were also very lucky to have a visitor from Tiny Lives to tell us all about how any money raised would be spent on resources for their tiny babies and their families. 

 

July 2022

We are very pleased to announce that we have raised £1268.97 for Tiny Lives!
