Charity Events

At Knowsley Junior School we pride ourselves on creating a school ethos with community at its heart.

As part of this, we encourage children to get involved in fundraising activities for both local and international charities. 

Thank you all for your support and generosity.

Have a look below at the wonderful charities we have supported so far this year.

Children in Need

It was all a little ‘Freaky Friday’ on this year’s Children in Need day, as pupils came to school dressed as teachers, and teachers as pupils. We donated £1 to dress up and enjoyed a number of activities, including a ‘Design the Perfect Teacher' competition.

We raised £582 for this year’s appeal.

Age UK

The Big Knit is a joint campaign between Age UK and Innocent Drinks to help vulnerable older people. We got very busy with our knitting needles and donated over 100 minature hats to Age UK Oldham. Each hat will raise 25p to support our community.

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

Year 3 held a coffee afternoon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. They baked their own cookies and cakes to sell and many families donated goods for our cake stalls. Friends and family were invited to join us for a drink and a chat before visiting their child's classroom to take a look at their learning. A big thank you to the Tesco store in Greenfield who donated teabags, coffee and milk to our event.

A wonderful afternoon was had by all and we raised £367!

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts bring great joy to the children who will receive them. 

Last year, nearly 1.2 million shoeboxes were packed with gifts and goodies and sent from the UK to children in some of the toughest parts of the world. Our children put together over 50 boxes for those less fortunate than themselves. Thank you.
