Welcome to our 'Charity Committee' page.
Watch this space for the announcement of our new school 'Charity Committee' who are going to work with Miss Charnock to prepare the way for our Lenten Charities, and do their best to support as many good charities in the local area and further afield. If you are in Year 6 and think you would like to be involved, please come and speak to Miss Charnock (Year 4C Class Teacher). We are going to need lots of help, enthusiasm and wonderful ideas! Similarly, if you can think of a particular charity which you think would be a good one for us to support, please come and tell us!
For our Lent Appeal last year (2016), we chose to support two charities; the PDSA and Chilli Children. We managed to raise a fantastic £1,746, which meant that each of our worthy charities received £873 towards their work. Both the PDSA and the Chilli Children Trust have written to us over the summer, thanking us for all our hard work and support. Have a look at the certificates in the Entrance Hall!
Helping pets in need for almost 100 years, PDSA touches the lives of more pets and their owners than any other animal charity in the UK today.
With 51 PDSA Pet Hospitals and over 380 Pet Practices delivering vital lifesaving care daily,the PDSA has a huge impact on animal welfare in our country.
Chilli Children Trust is a unique Christian charity working to improve the lives of thousands of children in Uganda, Africa. The Project Team help orphaned and disabled children in 4 districts at the very South Western end of Uganda, bordering Rwanda and DR Congo.
Regular surveys are carried out in remote areas to identify disabled children and provide them with access to surgery, life skills, medical outreach, and education.
The charity is called Chilli Children because families whose children are registered with the project are taught to grow chilli which gives them a means of self-reliance. his is made possible through the generosity of our supporters who kindly donate, fundraise, volunteer or visit the project
The children at Walmsley have been supporting Bolton Rotary Club with their 'Shoebox Scheme'. As a school we donated a total of 85 shoeboxes, containing a selection of toys, toiletries, educational items and household goods. These boxes will hopefully give the children of Eastern Europe a drop of happiness this Christmas.
On Friday, 14th November, the children came to school in their own clothes for a donation to 'Children in Need'. Our fabulous School Councillors also decorated cup cakes to sell during morning break. Walmsley School raised £343 for this wonderful cause.

In 2015 our Charity Committee supported two fantastis charities; Birtenshaw School and the Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary. We raised lots of money through a range of sponsored activities and a fantastic Afternoon Tea Party, complete with tea and cake! We also hosted an animal disco, where we wore some super costumes! We had a great time!
