Last year the Ethics Committee, which is a student led group who plan and co-ordinate charity and social justice events, reviewed how the money raised in school had been distributed. The key outcome of this review was that we found for the last three years the vast majority went to national and international charities. Therefore, last year a number of our key events sought to raise money for the groups working within the local community.
Following this, on Thursday 26th January, Sophie Lawson from Poole Hospital Charity visited St Edward’s in order to be presented with a cheque for £1,460 which was raised last year by students taking part in the charity mile. We also have cheques to be presented to the International Care Network, a Bournemouth based charity supporting the relocation of migrants and refugees into the local area and one for Routes to Roots, a charity working with homeless people in Poole.
