New Horizons’ Fundraising Week for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

June 10, 2022 12:43pm

During the last week of term, staff and children at our school came together to fundraise for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, in aid of a Reception pupil at our school being treated for leukemia at The Royal Marsden Hospital.

Our fundraising activities included a cycling and rowing challenge, in which we travelled the distance in miles to The Royal Marsden Hospital and back every day for four days. The equipment did not stop from 8am to 4pm across the four days, and all our staff and pupils got involved to help us reach our target!

We also held a bake sale on the school playground, with lots of yummy treats on offer. Parents also had the opportunity to purchase tickets for a raffle with lots of brilliant prizes on offer, including memberships at our Thinking Fitness gyms, tickets to the Ice Rink and passes for the Ninja Warrior Experience!

We set a target of £1000, but was overwhelmed with the participation and generosity of our community, and are proud to have raised over £2400! All funds raised will be sent directly to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity to fund the work of its world-leading cancer centre, whose work and research has supported patients since 1851 and will continue to do so long into the future.

On behalf of our whole community and the family of our Reception pupil, we’d like to say a huge thank you to every one who donated, participated in our events and sponsored our children. We are proud of our community for coming together to support one of our own, and hope the money we have raised makes a difference to patients at The Royal Marsden.
