Year 7s will support two charities this year HCPT which supports children by providing opportunities to take part in a pilgrimage to Lourdes.
The other charity is LEPRA which supports people who suffer from leprosy.


Year 8 are supporting the Neuroblastoma Appeal (see below) which will raise funds to provide chemotherapy treatment providing the first steps towards being cancer free.


The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is a charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.

The Stroke Association
The Stroke Association works to prevent stroke, and to support everyone touched by stroke, fund research, and campaign for the rights of stroke survivors of all ages.

HCPT is a charity offering pilgrimage holidays, to Lourdes in the south of France, for disabled and disadvantaged young people from around the UK and further afield.

Milly's Smiles
In memory of Milly Walmsley, one of our own. Milly lost her fight against Leukaemia on 20th September, 2015. Her charity aims to provide a welcome pack to each newly diagnosed family admitted onto Ward 84, at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, with items that will help during the first few days and weeks of their hospital stay. Along with this we will endeavour to offer items that will bring a smile to the faces of the children and let families know that people are thinking about them.


Year 10 have chosen to support Cancer Research in their campaign to improve the cancer survival, which currently stands at 50%. With continued research, it is hoped that over the next decade, this can be increased to 75%. But this can only be done with financial support.

We are hoping to support two main events in school this year to raise money: The Channel 4 'Stand up to Cancer' campaign in the autumn term and the Cancer Research 'Race for Life' event in the summer term.  

We raised over £3000 last year which was a phenomenal amount reflecting the fantastic effort made by pupils and the wonderful support given by their families, which is always very much appreciated. 



Year 11 will be supporting Nightsafe, Blackburn, a charity for homeless 16-25 year olds, collecting practical items/foods.
