Our Charity of the Year for 2019 is Friends of Castle Wood School.
We will be supporting the charity throughout the year at our events.
Friends of Castle Wood School is a charity that was established in 2009 when Government funding for extended services ended and they needed to raise funds to enable them to continue with the extended services provision.
Friends of Castle Wood runs Saturday clubs and holiday schemes for children with special educational needs. They rely on external funding from charitable trusts and foundations in addition to fundraising to ensure that these clubs continue to run. They need to raise in the region of £70,000 in grant funding per year to be able to keep this provision going.
This is an invaluable resource for the children and their parents so they need to do all they can to keep it going.
