Reaching Out

During the year, our children reach out to the local and wider community to support in different ways. This is achieved through charity collections for local, national and international charities.
At Christmas, our school singers perform at local residential homes.  We also collect items for the local Food Bank.
Reverse Advent Calendar 2020

This year has been hard for us all, but even harder for those with worries about money and the ability to feed their family. At St. Wilfrid’s, we have a food bank collection point that we frequently fill and take to our local food bank and we thank you for this generosity.

It has become popular in recent years for people to take part in a reverse Advent calendar and our school community came together in December 2020 to collect food and essential items to support the Haywards Heath foodbank. 

We received a certificate and these kind words from the Foodbank,

'Dear St Wilfrids School

On behalf of the Haywards Heath Food Bank, I would like to thank your staff and families for the amazing kindness and generosity that you have provided over the last month leading up to Christmas.

I am pleased to tell you that the weight of the food collected was 1496.55kgs, which is a fantastic amount.

You have enabled us to provide food and sundries for families in the community who require our help and support.

This year we have been providing food to an average of 100 people each week, and 54% of those are children, this could not have happened without you.'
