Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Charity Support

As part of our school vision, 'together we love, learn and grow', the support of charities and charitable acts is important to us all. The school focuses on a main charity, or charitable act, throughout the year and this is chosen and organised by our charity ministers. These ministers are democratically elected at the start of the year and take their role very seriously.

They organise presentations of a range of charities, then a vote  and a charity is elected.


As a Church of England school we value our community and as Christians we have decided to show our love and responsibility to it through our choice in this year's charity.


This year's charity selections are:

A local charity called 'Caring Hands'. It is based at the Christian centre in the Vale of Evesham. We would like to collect food and toiletry parcels to support them in supporting local families in need.


It is an important charity for our local people and families who are on low incomes, those in severe debt and with benefit issues, single parent families, ex-offenders,, families of ex-offenders, homeless, mental health problems, crisis situations such as illnesses, injury, relationship breakdowns and bereavement.


We feel all citizens should be happy citizens and would like to show how Harvington  Church of England First school and Caring Hands can together love, learn and grow.


We are also continuing to support  our school link in Tanzania raising money to sponsor a child to attend school and researching other ways we can help.



Previously, we have supported a range of charities over the last few years including The Guide Dogs, The Midlands Air Ambulance, St Richard’s Hospice, The Vale Wildlife Charity. 


The school also supports Children in Need and Red Nose Day.
