Chandlings Prep raises over £5000 for Oxford Children's Hospital Charity
Chandlings Prep were delighted to welcome David Child from Oxford Children’s Hospital Charity to their school to present him with a cheque for £5,382.84. The school had been raising funds over the year for the children’s hospital based at the John Radcliffe in Oxford. The charity had been voted for by the school as part of their annual charity programme and the charity Ambassadors had the task of presenting the cheque.
PATCH (Chandlings Prep Parent & Teacher Association) worked tirelessly alongside the charity ambassadors and the school community to raise this fantastic amount of money through a variety of events. These included a Dress to Express day, movie nights and discos, and a huge thank you must go to the second hand uniform shop who donated £3000 kindly represented by Mrs Hayes and Mrs Neville.
David Child came to the school to accept the cheque and showed how the money has helped to make children’s life in hospital better. This included play therapists, virtual headsets and new specialist equipment. He said “We are enormously grateful to Chandlings Prep for supporting us and raising these valuable funds for the Oxford Children’s Hospital Charity.“
