From now on, we will focus our fundraising to support CAFT (The Children's Adventure Farm Trust), as it's a very local charity that we've had a lot to do with this year. We recently completed a sponsored walk / run for them during Sports Week and are very proud to say we raised a huge £1,300.25. If you want to find out more about the charity please visit: https://caft.co.uk/

A big well done to two of our brilliant Year 4 pupils who organised a cake sale earlier in May at the school. The money they raised was donated to the Guide Dogs charity and Once Upon a Smile. We're looking forward to seeing how their cake company grows in the future!

This year, we will be supporting Mission Christmas by buying presents for underprivileged children in the local area. The aim of Cash for Kids Manchester is to make sure that as many children as possible receive a gift on Christmas Day. If you would like to support us, please send in a new, unwrapped gift (suitable for a child of any age) by Monday 10th December. Your donations will be very much appreciated at this festive time of year.

Today we are supporting Jeans for Genes at Stamford Park Junior School and it's lovely to see all the children (and staff) in their own clothes. It has certainly brightened up this very wet, autumnal morning!

Today our Sports Captains led our assembly, as part of their work with the Leadership Academy. In the spring, they will be organising a sponsored "mile a day" event for each class; this will raise our fitness levels and it will support a charity of their choice. Today they asked the children to vote on which charity we will be supporting for this event - the Snow Leopard Trust!

Last Friday, a group of Year 6 children organised and held a cake sale to raise money for Unicef. The children took care of all the advertising and the planning for the event. They worked incredibly hard and should be very proud of themselves. Well done to them! They even received this message from Unicef in recognition of their work.
Dear Year 6,
Thank you for your generous donation of £84 to UNICEF's work for children. Your kind gift will help Unicef's work for children and families worldwide. Unicef is the world's leading children's organisation, working in more than 190 countries.
We receive no funding from the United Nations budget and rely entirely on voluntary donations from valued supporters like you.
On behalf of everyone at UNICEF and all those who will benefit from your gift, thank you.
Your support is very much appreciated.

Today many of our children (and staff too) have come in wearing their football kits for Football Shirt Friday. This is an event run by Cancer Research (our chosen school charity this year) to raise funds for the very important work that they do. We have managed to raise £223.13 so a huge thank you to everyone at the school who has supported this very worthwhile cause today.

Today, children and staff at Stamford Park Junior School came to school wearing spots and stripes. We collected donations for Children in Need, which the charity council have counted and packaged up ready to be sent away. A huge thank you to everyone who supported this worthy cause, and for making the school look so colourful today with so many spots and stripes!

This morning, the Charity Council led our school assembly. They had previously selected six different charities and presented these to the rest of the school. All children in the school were also asked to vote for the charity that they wish to support this year. At the end of the day, the winning charity was revealed as Cancer Research. The Charity Council will be organising and running a number of events now this year. Well done to the Charity Council for successfully delivering their first assembly today!
