Trinity Academy has chosen to support three charities in particular. These are:
The decision to raise funds for two of these charities – Bluebell Wood and SAO Cambodia - was taken by Senior Management towards the end of the Autumn term 2005. The decision to support CRUK was taken in the Spring term 2006 following a ballot of students and staff in the Academy, from a short-list of five charities.
The three charities chosen by the Academy are representative of local, national and international charities, with one being selected from each of these categories. This reflects the fact that we are all members of wider communities extending out from our families and localities to the world population. All of these communities have identifiable needs that require our help and support. In this way, we hope that all those who work within the Academy - and our relatives, friends and neighbours – become more aware of the needs of others and take action to change their situation.
Apart from the support for the three charities abobe, Trinity Academy has raised money for Children in Need - £650, the African Children's Choir - £2,604 and Teenage Cancer Trust - £1,250 in the past, as well as currently being involved in the Knit a River campaign on behalf of Water Aid.
Since December 2005, Trinity Academy has raised over £8000 in support of various charities, due to the generosity of our students, their parents and friends and our staff.
In addition, 117 football shirts have been sent to Cambodia and various books, CDs and video tapes donated to a charity shop in Thorne supporting those with autism.
Support has also been given to Sophie's Fund - £14,563.
Grand Total so far: £46,590
