Marathon Fundraising Total So Far!

Click to go to our fundraiser on the JustGiving site!

Wow! So far, the Star Wars marathon has raised over £1000 – more than double our target! 

On May 4th pupils came into school dressed in sportswear and trainers… ready to run, to raise funds to support the British Red Cross. The Red Cross are doing vital work and providing essential supplies to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine and the school council decided they would like for us to support this effort.

Thank you to all the Fishergate community who have generously donated so far. If you would like to make a donation, you can still do so – just click on the picture to go straight to our fundraising page. You can also help by sharing this page with your friends and family!

Well done to Mrs Clarke, and all our amazing children!

May the Fourth be With You, everyone!

May the Fourth be With You…

…Star Wars Charity Marathon Day is back!

On May 4th all pupils will be asked to come into school dressed in PE clothes (or sportswear) and trainers… ready to run. This year we will be raising money for the British Red Cross and we ask that all donations are made via this JUST GIVING LINK.

The Red Cross are doing vital work and providing essential supplies to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine and the school council would like for us to support this effort.

Throughout the day classes will go out onto the school field to run a mile with Mrs Clarke. This year we would like to invite parents, carers, family members and friends to come along and support their child’s class or even to run with them!

Salvation Army Christmas Gift Appeal 2021

Every year the Salvation Army collect gifts for children and teenagers who receive very little at Christmas – and this year they need our help more than ever. Last year, they distributed toys and gifts to hundreds of children from York and the surrounding area – and our school donated over 100 toys towards this appeal. 

If you would like to donate any new gifts, for children aged 0-17, please pass them to your child to bring into school between now and Thursday 9th December.

The Salvation Army will come and collect any donated gifts and give them to local children and teenagers who need them the most.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL GIFTS NEED TO BE NEW AND UNWRAPPED.

We do appreciate what a tough year this has again been for a lot of us, so any support for this charity appeal would be much appreciated. We do hope that you feel able to contribute a gift for this valuable cause.

Thank you

Fishergate School Council
