Prince Henry’s Interact & Charity Fundraising Activities
Prince Henry’s is proud of its long tradition for fundraising and supporting a wide range of charitable organisations and the main focus for this is PHHS Interact which, supported by Evesham Rotary Club, involves students across all year groups. Please see the Interact News page for more details of recent fundraising activities.
Message from the Headteacher
Now in its fifth year, PHHS Interact goes from strength to strength. During the 2016-17 academic year our enthusiastic Interact members raised over £3,365.75 – a remarkable amount. They were able to make donations to our two nominated charities – St Richard’s Hospice and Médecins Sans Frontières, each of which received cheques for £910.46, whilst £1,500 was donated to sponsor a guide dog puppy – Prince. Events were also organised to support and donate to Children in Need, Royal British Legion and Comic Relief. As well as fundraising, Interact planned and delivered two successful activity afternoons of music and science for clients of Working World.
Already this year, students have organised a Macmillan coffee morning, started work on the shoe box appeal and are preparing for the annual Battle of the Bands event which will take place in the Arts Theatre on 8th December.
For 2017-18 the general proceeds which are not designated to other specific charities will be divided between our chosen charities – We are Enabled, which supports 16-25 year olds with chronic illness and Maggie’s, which provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.
None of this would be possible without the hard work and commitment of our Interact members, but I must also thank all the students and members of staff who so enthusiastically support the fund raising efforts throughout the school. In particular, special thanks must be given to Mrs Taylor and Miss Catchpole who work behind the scenes to support Interact.
