At Ashfold we encourage children to think about their responsibilities towards the world around them and in particular those in need. Each year we support a charity and hold a number of fundraising events throughout the year ranging from home clothes days, crazy hair days to sponsored 'spellathons' and the famous Wigan Run. These events provide a positive focus and an opportunity for our school community to come together to support other communities, both at home and abroad.
This year's Pupil Charity Committee have decided to support the OSCAR Foundation, an incredible charity that uses the power of football to encourage children in underprivileged communities in India to stay in school.
The Pupil Charity Committee produce posters and a PowerPoint presentation which they deliver to the whole school in assembly. The children are supported by staff who help organise the fundraising events in school and the oversea charities.
Here is a video from our latest event, the brilliant Festival of Colour Run!
