Charity Fundraising

2019 community day 2 IMG 2804

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 and leadership 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.

At Invicta we support a number of national and local charities. Each House chooses a charity to support and one of the House Shields that the 8 Houses compete for is the House Charity Shield.

This year our House Charities are:

  • Austen – Heart of Kent Hospice
  • Bronte – East Kent Sands
  • Colvin – CoppaFeel
  • Curie – Marie Curie
  • Frank – Spadework
  • Nightingale – MIND
  • Pankhurst – Kent MS Therapy Centre
  • Roddick – British Heart Foundation

In addition to this, the Sixth Form raise money through non-uniform days and RAG (Raise and Give) week for their chosen RAG charities, which this year are:

  • Tourettes Action
  • Therapy Partners
  • Slide Away
  • Beat
  • Maidstone Mencap

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 over the last nine 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. 

In addition, there are a number of local and national charities that we regularly support including:

  • Macmillan Coffee Morning (September)
  • Children in Need (November)
  • Love in a Box (December)
  • YouCan Appeal for Maidstone Homeless Care (December)

We are proud to celebrate our fundraising achievements with our students and staff as we raise a staggering £50,000 every year. This could not be achieved without the commitment of our students, staff and parents to our fund-raising endeavours.
