Ashley's Birthday Bank

The school would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and staff that have kindly donated to our Christmas collection for Ashley's Birthday Bank . We would also like to say a special thank you to Kelsi-Jo and Alisha-Mai Marshallsay. The girls both saved up their pocket money in order to purchase items to support families that sometimes need that little bit of extra support. They have also kindly donated their old scooters which will definitely make two children very happy this Christmas.

Thank you all again for all your kindness and generosity!

Throughout the year this charity has been supporting some of our most vulnerable families within our school and across the Trust. The charity provides our families with clothing, food and living essentials such as toiletries and cleaning products. This year we would like to collect as many toiletries as possible to support this fantastic charity. I know these items don't seem very festive but the difference they can make to a family in crisis is invaluable especially over the Christmas period.
Please check out the Ashley's birthday bank website at to see all the wonderful things they do to support our families and many others. There is even an interview from our very own Tanya Shenton who is our schools Education Social Worker. Tanya has worked tirelessly throughout the year to support the families in our Trust and I know Ashley's Birthday Bank has been a vital resource for her. Anything you can contribute will be greatly received by the charity.
