Save the Children Appeal 2015

We always have a Harvest Appeal and direct it towards a deserving charity.

 

This year we have decided to support the Save the Children Child Refugee Crisis Appeal. This is obviously a major news issue at the current time but we thought it would be appropriate to focus our appeal on the children who are caught up in this crisis.

 

  • So far in 2015 more than 350,000 desperate people have made the perilous journey across the Mediterranean Sea.
  • In Italy, 7,600 children have arrived alone since January, without any parents or families at all.
  • For those who do survive the treacherous journey, the terrifying ordeal is not over.
  • Children often arrive in Europe scared and exhausted.
  • Many have seen and experienced untold horrors during their journey.

 

We will make boxes with the children this week and ask each child to talk to their friends and family about the crisis. Each box has a place for our children to write their own message to the children who we are trying to help.  The children need to try and collect the money that they can in their box and return it to school by Monday 12th October.

 

During that week we will hold special assemblies about the crisis and talk about how the children have raised their money.
