Students are fundraising for St Catherine's Hospice at Tanbridge House School

Tanbridge House School is taking part in the 5-0 Project to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice. Students have been working hard to find fun and creative ideas to raise money within school and the local community.

On March 24 we will be running a Zumbathon from 9.30am to 11.30am in the sports hall at the school and everyone is welcome to come along, burn calories and raise money for a great cause. Entry costs £10, paid on the door.

We will be showing off our musical talent in a concert for students on March 15 and of course there will be a cake sale!

One very brave student is being sponsored to shave his head and students are currently coming up with ways to make their teachers make fools of themselves in order to raise money!

“St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity which has touched the lives of many people in our school community and every year we are inspired to do more to help the amazing work they do,” said Noah Dawson who is taking part in the challenge for the second year.

Last year, St Catherine’s cared for more than 2,000 people and their family and friends. Offering practical and emotional support, the hospice’s expert care is free to local people, but with less than a third of its running costs coming from the NHS, St Catherine’s relies on the generosity and support of the local community. By holding these fundraising events Tanbridge House School is helping make a real difference to terminally ill people in their community.
