We are very proud of the charity support and fundraising we do at Cumnor School.
Each year we select a charities which we then support through our fundraising efforts throughout the year. Following consultation with their classes, our school Council nominate a range of charities for the whole school to vote for.
On Election day a polling station is set up in the hall and each child is given a voting card before going to the voting booth to place their X against the charity of their choice and then posting it into the ballot box. (Children who no they are going to be away on the day can have a postal vote)
At the end of the day the votes are counted and a winner declared.
Last year there was tie for first place with Wateraid and the DEC receiving the same number of votes. Over the course of the year we raised just over £1,000 for these charities.
The charity we have chosen to support this year is Syria Relief
Syria Relief is a non-political, non-denominational, non-governmental charitable organisation, set up to provide humanitarian aid to Syrian families and individuals in need, in Syria and outside it, irrespective of religion, geographical location, or political persuasion. Syria Relief works round the clock to ensure that every penny you raise goes straight to needy families in Syria.The money that you donate will go, promptly and without delay, straight to where it is needed most, to alleviate the suffering of people in Syria.
At our Harvest Service this year we donated food to the Oxford Homeless Shelter. Thank you for your support.
