Charity Events

A heartfelt thank you to students, staff and parents who come together at various points throughout the academic year to raise money and supplies for those in need. We support a number of charities including Mary’s Meals, Macmillan Cancer Support, Young Minds, Breast Cancer Now, The Royal British Legion, Children in Need, Royal National Institute of Blind People,  British Red Cross, Comic Relief, and CAFOD.

“Love is not patronising and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same- with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.” – Mother Teresa

Many of us also spread our love by collecting food items for various emergency appeals throughout the year as they arise. In the past, the staff at Notre Dame collected clothes, shoes, blankets and toys for young children who had just arrived to the country from Afghanistan. As a school, we were able to expand on this, as we continued to collect and create care packages for the homeless community at Christmas. In February, we began to pray for the people of Ukraine. Some chose to donate money and many donated food items, warm clothes and toiletries via a local Polish Centre.

Thank you once again for all your kindness and support. You all contribute in many ways and make a huge difference to the lives of others.




Mary’s Meals

Notre Dame continues to support Mary’s Meals to continue to be its focus charity this year aiming to raise every month at least £13.90 -which will support 1 child for 1 academic year.

£13.90 x 11 = £152.90 = 11 children supported & fed in School for a year = A brighter future

Mary's Meals is a no-frills charity with a simple idea: to provide one good meal in a place of learning, through this idea children are drawn into the classroom where they can receive an education that could one day free them from poverty.

Mary’s Meals is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty. Mary's Meals is based on respect and reaches out to people of all faiths and of none.

Notre Dame has chosen that Mary's Meals is its focus charity for our major fundraising efforts alongside our other charitable commitments.

Mary's Meals in early October just celebrated their  BILLIONTH meal served - The dish was served to 12-year-old Mohsin in Noida, India. He and his classmates marked the joyful occasion with dancing and songs. Notre Dame is proud to have been able to contribute to this amazing achievement. Mary's Meal says that £13.90 is all it costs for us to feed a child for a whole school year. You can donate to Mary's Meals at www.marysmeals.org.uk/donate
