Fund Raising At St Mark's CE Primary School
At St Mark's CE primary school, we are passionate about supporting our church, local community and key events for good causes, such as Children in Need, MacMillan coffee morning and Red Nose day- to name but a few.
We also take our responsibility seriously in helping other children in the world and are committed to supporting the St George foundation in Sierra Leone, who offer genuine love, targets self esteem, self confidence, self discipline and education. The children's lives are literally transformed. Click here to see further information about this.
Staff swap classroom for the pool! - September 2016

Staff swim for specialised trike!
The staff of St Mark’s are preparing to undertake a significant swim! In fact at the end of September we will be swimming the equivalent distance of the ‘Straights of Gibraltar’ to raise funds for one of our Year 2 pupils, Emelia, who was born with arthrogryposis.
This is a lifelong condition which causes stiffness of the knees and feet, making it impossible for Emelia to ride a shop bought trike. After hearing the disappointing news of the refusal of grant funding for a specially adapted trike, the staff were horrified and started to hatch a plan!
Please support the staff in raising the funds so that Emelia is provided with the same opportunities as her peers - to ride a trike! This trike would not only enable Emelia to take part in riding with her friends and family but also provide a much needed tool for strengthening her legs.
We would be incredibly grateful for both your support and that of the community.
You can donate in two ways:
Thanks for your support and please pass this plea on to as many of your family and friends as possible - every little helps…
Now, out with our swimming costumes!
