Rag Week – At Wollaston we give back to our Community…

Just Giving page

Each year, Wollaston School organises RAG week in which we select 3 charities that the we would like to fundraise for. We host events during the school day and aim to get both students and staff involved to raise money for such fantastic organisations. The three charities that have been chosen this year by the students are Cransley Hospice, Grab Life (From At A Loss) and The Low Down.

Cransley Hospice is a local cancer charity in Northamptonshire specialising in end of life care for patients and support for their families. The tremendous work that this organisation provides to those families gives them the emotional support, care and love that they need during such a difficult time.

A Loss is a bereavement charity supporting young adults who have been affected by the passing of a loved one. Their aim is to provide help and guidance to these individuals by offering activity weekends for them to attend with others who are experiencing similar emotions to them. This charity has been selected in loving memory of Bryony Freestone, an ex-student of Wollaston School who tragically passed away in 2016.

The Low Down is a Northamptonshire based organisation who offer counselling to 12-25 year olds in distress or who are experiencing crisis. The extraordinary services that they provide aim to benefit both the young adults and carers by helping them through situations that are troubling them.

The work that these organisations offer is funded through generous donations and as a school, we feel very proud to be supporting these remarkable charities. Any contributions to help us show our support would be greatly appreciated.
