Charities at NHEHS
At NHEHS every week, throughout the year, form groups take it in turn to raise funds for charities chosen by the girls themselves. During the Autumn term, nine form groups ran fundraising initiatives in support of a variety of fantastic charities. As usual, the events were creative, innovative and lots of fun ranging from school movie screenings, to events which rely on the good humoured involvement of members of staff such as a teacher spice challenge, a teacher lip-sync battle, a teacher bleep test and a teacher pop quiz. The girls raised over £2,100 for their nine charities which include the Anthony Nolan Trust, the Royal Brompton Heart Hospital, DePaul UK which works with homeless young people and Westminster Befriend a Family.
Shortly before half-term, in the spirit of Harvest Festival, the whole school collected food for Ealing Foodbank successfully managing to beat our own record and collecting hundreds of kilograms of food. Our Christmas Present Appeal, in collaboration with the Salvation Army, produced a range of really fantastic and thoughtful gifts and our annual Christmas jumper day raised funds in aid of Camfed the charity which provides educational opportunities for young girls in Africa.
This term, as well as more weekly form charity events, we will be launching a whole school appeal for sanitary products for the Binti charity as well as a book collection for refugees in Greece.
Thank you to all the girls for all their efforts on behalf of their chosen charities and to all the parents and staff who have so generously support them.
