Helping Others

On this page we share with you details of all our fund raising activities and events in aid of various different causes and charities.

Also included are occasions when we simply helped out in our own community

EPILEPSY ACTION

On Thursday 22nd March everyone came to school wearing something purple and brought a donation of £1 in aid of Epilepsy Action. Then on Friday 23rd March after the Looking to Easter service at St Faith's Church, Kilsby, we hosted a coffee and cakes morning where all donations again went to Epilepsy Awareness.

Altogether we raised a grand total of £250, which is brilliant as we are such a small school, thank you to all the parents for your support.

LITTER PICKING IN KILSBY

On Tuesday 20th March, all the children at Kilsby School did their bit to help keep Kilsby tidy by going out and about around the village to pick up any litter they could see. They used special litter pickers to grab the rubbish to put it into their sacks.

We hope the residents of Kilsby agree that the village is looking much tidier!

CHILDREN IN NEED

On Friday 17th November, the children came to school wearing something spotty and brought a donation towards Children in Need.

At break time some of the girls in Maple class held a stall selling homemade cakes, friendship bracelets and book marks. It was their own idea to do this to help raise more money for this cause, and they organised everything themselves.

They sold out on everything and raised a grand total of £137.45! Well done girls you did really well, we are so proud of you! So with this added on to the donations from all the children on the day.

HARVEST GIFTS

On Tuesday 3rd October all the children and staff went to St Faith's Church, Kilsby for the Harvest Festival service. Rev Nigel led the service, and the children sang some harvest songs, read some harvest readings and prayers, then after the service everyone came back to school for coffee and cakes, the money raised was put towards Andy Martin's fund raising for Parkinsons.

All the children brought beautiful harvest gifts to school before the service and during the afternoon these were distributed around the village of Kilsby to some of the elderly residents. We have already received some thank you letters from the villagers!

PARKINSONS

On Wednesday 20th September all the children and staff of Kilsby School waited outside the school gates to greet Andy Martin & his son Liam (who accompanied his dad for the stretch of walk from Rugby to Kilsby).

From 1st September, Mr Martin walked all the way from John O'Groats to Kilsby and then continued all the way down to Lands End in aid of Parkinsons. The whole 900 mile route took him most of the month of September. He took a detour on that day especially to walk to school with his son Liam.

When they both appeared round the corner, everyone shouted and cheered them on. Mr Martin stopped for a brief photo shoot then took a well earned coffee break at school and left to continued on his travels. We helped Mr Martin raise funds for Parkinsons Disease by sponsoring Liam and selling coffee and cakes in school after the Harvest festival service at St Faith's Church on 3rd October.
