Etone Give £10,000 in Three Years

Etone College has always been on a mission to raise as much as possible for charity and provide support within the local and national community. With the launch of a new Community Initiative programme back in September 2021 the school has worked hard to support the local area raising funds for national campaigns: Mind, Anti-Bullying Alliance, Comic Relief, Jeans for Jeans, Children in Need, Salvation Army, British Legion, Macmillan to name just a few. 

Our Community Champions do a tremendous job of making sure the word is spread far and wide and there is always a strong sense of achievement from this crack team of community givers, notable for their big hearts and nearly as big Community Champion badges.

Additionally, we have also developed the programme to support our House Charities; University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (Centaur), Guy’s Gift (Dragon), Doorway (Griffin) and Mary Ann Evan’s Hospice (Phoenix). Each of these organisations are local to the area and provide healthcare, support, guidance, counselling amongst many other interventions to ensure that everyone is catered for in the local community.

Our Sixth form have worked together with the main school to support our local foodbank (Nuneaton Foodbank) with our annual food bank collection drives, fundraising days and events. On top of this we work year round to raise awareness or have a community involvement with many areas an organisations.

As part of our fundraising activities students have; Dontate items of food or toys for the Salvation Army Toy Drive, made and sold cakes for bake sales, wore their non-school uniform, taken part in ‘Create a Joke’ competitions amongst other challenges. Supporting this our incredible staff take part in the events such as Etone Bake Off or most recently our humongous challenge to Row to Paris and Back (from the safety of the hall) in support of our House Charities.

These events have always been hugely popular with just the last event alone raising over £1,200 towards the House charities.

We are so proud to announce that with the addition of staff donations towards the Acorn Children’s trust of £500 Etone has succeeded their target to raise over £10,000 in three years. With the current total £10,333.81 and counting this is a truly amazing fete and something we are proud of. A big thank you to all of our charities and supporters.
