OWN Trust Charity Day 08.07.24

OWN Trust Schools are working together to raise money for UNICEF on 8th July 2024.

On Monday 8th July 2024, the OWN Trust Schools (Woodston Primary School, Nene Valley Primary School and Orton Wistow Primary School) will be working together to raise money for UNICEF, an agency of the United Nations that provides humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.

Children in the OWN Trust Schools have been invited to help raise money for UNICEF by:

  • Wearing non-uniform (including wearing something blue, which is the UNICEF colour, if they wish)
  • Participating in a physical challenge with their class, which will involve walking around the school field carrying a cup of water to highlight what children in other parts of the world experience to get drinking water.

Parents can donate via the OWN Trust Just Giving Page.

Every year, the OWN Trust Schools hold a Charity Day to support a charity that is close to the heart of one of the schools.

In 2022, Nene Valley Primary School chose the charity, the Cavanoma Alliance UK. In 2023, Woodston Primary School chose Macmillan Cancer Support. This year, Orton Wistow Primary School has chosen UNICEF.

UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund, working in the world’s toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents – and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere.

One of the world’s largest providers of vaccines, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, safe water and sanitation, quality education and skill building, HIV prevention and treatment for mothers and babies, and the protection of children and adolescents from violence and exploitation.

Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF is on the ground, bringing life-saving help and hope to children and families.

Every donation will help to build a better world for every child.
