Charity Fund-raising

   Cake sale for epilepsy 27   Tropical non uniform day   Royal marsden colour run 4

At Invicta Grammar School we are keen that our students and staff are fully committed to and participate in fund-raising opportunities for charity.  We believe that fund-raising should be fun but we also strongly believe it is an ideal way for our school community to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.  Raising money for charity is a fantastic way to give something back to our local, national and international communities and to make a real difference to the lives of others.  However, we also know our students personally benefit from being involved in fund-raising activities in school.  Organising fund-raising activities presents our students with a real opportunity to develop as individuals and develop key skills such as events management, marketing and people management as well as team building skills.  These are all very relevant skills to students' future lives at university and in the world of work.

There are many easy, wonderful and outright bizarre ways to raise money and at Invicta we have tried and tested a large variety, thanks to the imaginations of our students and the positive participation of our staff and students! Events have included dress up days, staff vs. students competitions, performing arts shows and staff dancing and singing in front of students – which is always a crowd pleaser!  Each year, sees a new event appear on the Invicta calendar and our students never cease to amaze us with their commitment to ensure we make a real difference to the charities we support annually.

Our students choose the charities they want to support throughout the academic year either through decisions for RAG (Raise and Give) Week or through our House system.  This year, our student chosen RAG charities are:

• Dandelion Time

• Bliss

• Parkinson’s UK

• Rubicon Cares

• The Befriending Society

We continue to work on some ongoing projects with the Royal Marsden Hospital and The Guide Dogs Association for the Blind. We have a strong link with the Royal Marsden Hospital following the sad loss of one of our former students, Amanda Slann, to leukaemia.  We are proud to celebrate her memory each year and have raised over £30,000 for the Royal Marsden alone over the last five years.  Our work with the Guide Dogs Association for the Blind is also ongoing and we have recently been able to adopt a third puppy in the school’s name following the hard fund-raising work of our students. 

We are proud to celebrate our fundraising achievements with our students and staff at the end of each academic year. Last year we managed to achieve another all time school record with the amount we raised, achieving a total of £50,267.00 raised for charity in just one school year!  We set ourselves a challenging target for fundraising each year and each year we seem to smash our targets!  This could not be achieved without the commitment of our students, staff and parents to our fund-raising endeavours.
