- Sarum Hall Parents Association raises £8k for chosen charities
- The money will be shared between CARIS Families, a charity which supports homeless children and their parents in north London; and Paiwand, a charity which helps refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants to build a happy life in the UK.
- Money was raised at the school’s summer Fayre, and a sponsored ‘bounce’
Belsize Park, London, Tuesday 28th June: – Sarum Hall School, an independent prep school for girls in London’s Belsize Park, has raised £8000 with two summer events organised by its parent’s association.
The school’s first Summer Fayre since 2019 attracted the entire school community to its playground for a traditional event with face painting, sandy art, ‘splat the rat’, and even a bucking Broncho and a great time was had by all.
And the school’s first ‘sponsored bounce’ ensured complete exhaustion for pupils! Girls were asked to secure sponsorship from family and friends to see how long they could bounce for at a special event in the playground.
The school community gave generously. The money is to be split equally between CARIS Families, a charity which supports homeless children and their parents in north London; and Paiwand, a charity which helps refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants to build a happy life in the UK.
Victoria Savage, headmistress of Sarum Hall, said:
“I’m so pleased, that after three long years, our wonderful parent’s association have been able to put on a summer Fayre. The girls of Sarum Hall and their families had a wonderful time, and it was such a pleasure to see that the school community could come together again. The sponsored bounce was tremendous fun and I’m so please that we raised so much money.’
Mrs Clare Maddison, the chair of the parent’s association said:
“The feedback from the events have been amazing and it’s heartening to know everyone has enjoyed them so much. It’s the first time we’ve held a school fair for some time, so we are delighted that it was so well received and that we raised so much money for our 2 local charities. We’re already looking forward to next year!
