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
Established in 2012, PHHS Interact goes from strength to strength. During the 2018-19 academic year, our enthusiastic Interact members raised over £3,000 – a remarkable amount. They were able to donate to their two chosen UK charities – Young Minds and Dementia UK, whilst a significant contribution was made to help build a toilet book at a school in Sri Lanka. Events were also organised to support and donate to Macmillan, Children in Need and the Royal British Legion.
The students’ fundraising plans for 2019-20 already include organising a Macmillan coffee morning, fundraising for Children in Need, our annual shoe box appeal, the annual Drop the Mic music competition which will take place in the Arts Theatre on Friday 6th December and the Spring event, which will also take place in the Arts Theatre on Friday 20th March 2020.
For 2019-20 the students have chosen to support homeless charities and to support environmental initiatives. If you are having a clear out, we will be having clothes collections for Maggs Day Centre in Worcester, a charity supporting homeless people in Worcester. For this year’s international project, Interact is seeking to raise funds for Laos Educational Trust to raise £850 – £1500, the amount needed for a child to go to Technical College or University in Laos for a year.
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, Mrs Page-Jones, Mrs De Silva Morgan, Mrs Fordham and Mrs Lungley who all work behind the scenes to support Interact.
