Charities and Outreach
Experiencing all walks of life
At Channing we pride ourselves on developing the altruistic nature of our girls.
Having an understanding of not just those less materially fortunate, but also the happiness that help can bring, is integral to building character. By exposing our girls to different charities from an early age, they learn that there are all kinds of people and life experiences in this world, and begin to see and truly understand those who are less fortunate than themselves.
We work with various charities, many local, that the girls can really engage with and understand the difference their help makes. We support a chosen charity each term which is selected by our Year 6 Charity Champions. We use a range of enjoyable fundraising events including cake sales, sponsored individual challenges, talent contests, to fancy dress days and raffles. Recent charities have included: Lumos, Woodlands School, Euston Food Bank, Caris, All Dogs Matter, World Land Trust and Rays of Sunshine.
Additionally, we regularly support the Whittington Hospital and local care homes and work closely with the charity, Kissing it Better. The girls visit patients and residents, sing to them and send them cards.
