School Charities

Last Year we raised over £1,000 for our School Charities!

Throughout the school year all members of the Catsfield School community will take part in a range of activities to raise money for charity. This year we have decided to support 5 charities: 2 Local, 2 National and 1 International so that our children's understanding of these charities and the reasons behind them raising money will be heightened.

Local: Dragonflies / Out of the blue

Out Of The Blue is a fund raising body established in memory of Will Beckett who took his own life at Beachy Head in January 2013, at the age of 42. The tragedy came as an incredible shock for his family and friends - it simply came 'Out Of The Blue'. The charity raise funds for three charities which helped Will's family and friends in the immediate aftermath of his death. The charities are Winston's Wish, Dragonflies and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team. Out of the Blue raises money to support these charities so that they can continue to help others. You can find details of how each charity helped Will's family and you can also donate to Out of the Blue on the Virgin Money and Facebook page.
