Charity Committee chooses to support the Children’s Respite Trust
Posted: 15th October 2013
Skippers Hill's newly-formed Charity Committee has chosen to support the Children’s Respite Trust, as their Charity of the Year.
The response this year from pupils who wish to be involved in charity fund raising has been tremendous and we now have a team of volunteers from Years 7 and 8, as well as a dedicated Charity Committee, who will help to organise and co-ordinate events over the coming year. This year's Charity Committee are Gabbi Leach (Year 8), Sam Wallace (Year 8), Lizzie Webb (Year 8), Nathaniel Swirsky (Year 8) and Francesca Plaskett (Year 7).
Mr Lewis, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting the Children’s Respite Trust. This is a cause which I am sure our pupils will be able to relate to and we hope that our fundraising efforts over the next year will go some way to helping the important work that this charity does.”
Gavin Fisher, Chief Executive of the Children’s Respite Trust, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have the support of Skippers Hill. It is always wonderful to see children supporting others within their local community.”
The Children’s Respite Trust, which operates from East Hoathly, improves the lives of children with profound learning and physical disabilities by helping them to get a short break, throughout Sussex, Kent and parts of Surrey and London.
