Frodsham Manor House Primary School fundraise throughout the year for a range of charities outside our school community. Throughout the year we support Claire House with our birthday Campervan (a money box) where children make a donation if they wish on their birthday week. Claire House is a children's hospice in The Wirral who support Meg and Harry Devereux-Roberts. To find out more about the fantastic work which Claire House do click on their logo below.
Most of our fundraising this year has been posted on twitter. Events have included Edith in Year 3 organising more than 30 filled back packs for Mary's Meals, Izzy and Iona as Fair trade officers organised a Fair Trade stall, led an assembly and collected to twin with three toilets on the Ivory Coast, School Council have been raising money for the Ellen McCarthur Trust, Colour Run, Harvest Boxes, A reverse advent calendar for the local Food Bank, British Legion, Children in Need, Comic Relief etc. Year 5 also had a Christmas present collection to cheer their class mate up.

Year 6 Entrepreneur Project
From March to July the Year Six class will be organising a range of fundraising activities for their London residential whilst learning business skills including car washing, school disco, jewellery making, tattoos and nail art. This will pay for the matching hoddies while on residential.
We supported Comic Relief by selling noses in school then decorating our faces for the day. The staff all wore masks of Mr Devereux-Roberts while he was in Ghana.
School Councillors ran a stall at the Christmas Fair raising £60 for Cancer Research and donating all left over books and DVDs to our local Cancer Research Shop.
Year Six have been working in shifts today bag packing in Morrisons for the 'Text Santa' appeal. Text Santa is supporting Alzheimer's Society, Guide Dogs, Marie Curie, Teenage Cancer Trust, Together for Short Lives and Wellchild. They had lots of positive comments from shoppers and raised £330.

The School Council have selling poppies and a range of other merchandise from the British Legion. On Remembrance Sunday the Chair and Vice Chair of the School Council represented our school by laying a poppy wreath at the war memorial. Many other Frodsham Manor House Children attended with their uniformed organisations. We will receive a certificate from The Royal British Legion saying how much we raised in the near future.
Stand up to Cancer
The School Council have voted to support Cancer Research as their charity this year and 'Stand Up to Cancer Day' was their first fundraiser. We all had a go at making our hair stand up to cancer and had a giant doughnut sale afterschool. Thanks to School Coucil families, staff and The Devonshire Bakeries for donating so many doughnuts. We raised a fantastic £460.
