Charity Event Days

This page is dedicated to our charity events! At Crackley Bank we love to be Charity Heroes by organising and taking part with special days and events in school. You will find details of our charity days, and past charity days on here smiley 

Keep checking in to see all of the fun things we have been up to laugh


Thursday 15th July

Throughout July we have been raising money for Cancer Research by taking part in 'Crackley Bank's Race for Life'. The children were given sponsorship forms in order to raise an amount of money themselves. They have worked so hard with getting donations from their friends and family, and it has been lovely to see the children's charitable spirit!

Throughout last week and this week, all the children have taken part in their Race for Life and have been awarded a medal for completing their race. The children were so excited to do this - and even more excited to receive a medal! 

We can't thank you all enough for the money raised, as we have raised a phenomenal £2213.50!! Just an amazing effort, despite what has been a very tough year. Well done to everybody for this incredible achievement. 



Friday 14th May 

We had a bit of a different day in school today - we came dressed in our pyjamas! We celebrated Book Trust's 'Pyjamarama' day which raises money to ensure every child can have access to books. 

We had a lovely day in school. Nursery joined in with the day by reading bedtime stories under a blanket. Reception role-played The Three Little Pigs! Year 1 acted out the story of 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea'. All the classes enjoyed making a bookmark to use in their reading book for school, based on the book they chose to learn about. 

We also had a virtual storytelling session between KS2 and Early Years and KS1. KS2 read some wonderful stories to the younger children - and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all! 

We managed to raise a total of £125 to donate to the Book Trust so well done to everyone for your very generous donations! smiley


Friday 19th March 

Today was RED NOSE DAY! We had a great day in school. Our theme this year was to come to school in whatever you fancy! It was a 'dress as you like' day. We saw so many different outfits, costumes and noses! It was fantastic smiley

We also joined in with some fun Red Nose Day activities such as quizzes, games and colouring! Mrs Taylor sold some red noses for the event so some children had some very interesting noses for the day!

We raised a total of £313 which is just incredible!

Thank you all for your support and for all your messages on our Just Giving page. The children were so excited to see the total rising each day!


Friday 4th February

Today we celebrated 'World Cancer Day'. The children thought about people who might be poorly, and how we could make them smile! We joined in via Teams or at school, and chose something that made us smile and explained why it did. We raised £156 to donate to our special charity - Leukaemia Care. 



Friday 11th December

Today was our 'Christmas Jumper Day'. We loved seeing all the children in their wonderful christmas jumpers! We raised £103 for The Donna Louise. 


We even had a letter from Donna Louise to say thank you for our donations smiley

Friday 4th December, 2020 

Today was the day when we raised enough money for each class to build a 'virtual' shoebox to send to children all over the world via The Samaritans. 

Each class decided who they would like to send their shoebox to (boy or girl), how old they would like their child to be and what items would be included in their shoebox. The children had such thoughtful and sensitive ideas and discussions when creating the shoebox. It really was a reflection of our ethos - Care, Belief, Pride, Success. 

Friday 13th November, 2020

The children have really enjoyed joining in with the 'Five to Thrive' for Children in Need!

We have raised a total of £198.42 from all your fantastic donations!! smiley

Thank you so much!


Friday 16th October, 2020

We are proud to announce that we are raising money for 'The Trussel Trust'. A really good cause that supports our local Newcastle Staffs food bank.  

Thank you SO much for your amazing generosity to our Just Giving page. We raised a total of £211 to donate to the Trussel Trust. 
Well done Crackley Bank!
