Charity Work at TASS

As a school with a strong Christian ethos, we actively encourage our children to be aware of the needs of others, to think about how they can respond to help people in situations worse than their own & to realise their responsibilities as citizens.

Aside from the usual Children in NeedRed Nose Day plus our very own Enterprise Project with YMCA White Rose, we have loads of requests to do things for charity in school. Some children will also do charity events in their spare time out of school, but we still ask them to share what they have achieved & make other children aspire to make a difference. Needless to say, we are extremely proud of all that they achieve!!

To hold a charity event at school, children first of all have to pitch their idea to the Headteacher, plan out their event using formal proformas, create a Powerpoint show & then have to present to the school. Only then are they ready to go ahead with the actual event. We find that this process helps our children to think carefully about all of the aspects involved in planning an event as well as shows off their commitment to making something happen! We have children from all age groups getting together to do this – there is no age limit.

Here are just a few of the many amazing things that our children got up to for charity:

Sahara Trek for  Guide DogsDSCN0082

Freddie Cannell, has taken charity work to another level! He braved scorching hot weather, snakes and sun burn to trek 100km across the Sahara desert over four days helping to raise an amazing £5,618 for his favourite charity, Guide Dogs.

In recognition of his work, Freddie then went on to win the Rugby Pride Young Achiever of the Year Award & was presented with a trophy, a family ticket for Diggerland & went on to meet Bear Grylls!

Freddie has also won much publicity through his initiative: Talking Buses, following on from his contact with Nick Clegg just before the general election. Having met with the MD of First Bus Company and their Communications officer, they agreed to participate in a blindfolded bus journey to gain further insight into the problems for blind and partially sighted people.

Freddie also won the category ‘Passionate and Determined’ as well as ‘The Most Inspirational Young Person’ at the Guide Dogs People Awards & was then given the “Highly Commended” award at the House of Commons’ Inspire House Awards. Freddie has also appeared on Blue Peter & has been awarded his very own Blue Peter Badge! What a star! Well done, Freddie!
