Charity & Community

Charity at Slindon College

The College supports a number of national charities on an annual basis with various fundraising events including mufti-days, sponsored walks, cake sales, raffles.  This allows the College to be able to make donations, monetary and goods, and raise awareness for those charities. 

                                                  

Each House chooses a local charity to support each academic year.  Chosen charities for this year are:

Cowdray House The Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre, based in Chichester, was to Rescue and Rehome Cats, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs. They have helped over 25,000 animals and rehome about 1,000 a year.
Richmond House Canine Partners is a UK charity based in Midhurst. The charity transforms the lives of people living with disabilities by training amazing assistance dogs.
Norfolk House Little Hearts Matter is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting and empowering anyone affected by the diagnosis of a single ventricle heart condition – or half a working heart.
Sussex House PACSO is a local charity that supports children with disabilities and their families in the Chichester and Arun districts of West Sussex. We offer a range of respite activities and fun events for the whole family to enjoy. 

The College encourages and supports pupils and staff to get involved in all kinds of voluntary and charity activities.   The message that pupils have a moral obligation to help others less fortunate than themselves is reinforced within the framework of our termly assembly programme. 

Community at Slindon College

The College operates a policy of offering the House and grounds at a reduced rate or gratis for any appropriate local community fundraising activity when possible. The parish church is permitted gratis use of the college grounds and facilities to host the annual village fete.   The College regularly worships in the parish church and pupils undertake voluntary work in the Church grounds.   The College opens up use of tennis courts and swimming pool to local residents in Summer holidays as well as other community initiatives. 

The College has very close ties with Slindon C of E Primary School offering use of our minibus and driver to assist with transport to and from various educational visits, use of facilities and grounds and participating in numerous shared learning experiences.
