The Marvell College community recognises the need to help others, and the school aims to raise a large amount of money for charity every year. The school is very proud of the commitment and eagerness of its students to raise funds for its chosen charities year after year. Every term sees each year group take responsibility for planning, organising and delivering a variety of fundraising events in order to help make a difference.
In addition, many students engage in community work, and a number of our students help to collect much needed foodbank items and assist with the delivery of these each half term.
The Charity Committee is a student group made up from volunteer representatives from each of our year groups. The group researches a variety of local or national charities and decides which organisations will benefit from fundraising drives and initiatives which the pupils lead on each year.
The group meets regularly to discuss ideas for fundraising and to organise events for our school community to raise awareness, and of course funds, for our charities. They also work closely with the local foodbank St Philips Church, Bilton Grange in order to raise much needed supplies to support the most vulnerable in our local community.

Leeds Hospitals Charity
Is for Leeds Teaching Hospitals to be the best hospital, in the healthiest city in the UK.
Is to support Leeds Teaching Hospitals in their aim to deliver the best care to patients and their families. We do this by working together with patients and their families, donors, fundraisers, volunteers, local businesses and other charities in order to raise additional funding. Funding is delivered through our six priority areas: Equipment, Research, Education, Health & Wellbeing, Environment and Specialist Staff.
Leeds Hospitals provide specialist care to people all across Yorkshire.
The first Emmaus opened in 1991 and there are now 30 communities, which is what we call our residential sites, spread across the UK. There are also three Emmaus groups currently working to open new communities.
Emmaus supports more than 850 people who have experienced homelessness. We provide them with support, a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work and training in our social enterprises. We hope to provide a home to 1,100 people by 2025.

The charity was established in 2016 by Paul Spence, a brain injury survivor who recognised the need for a recovery service to give all survivors the chance for a better future and to enable them to live their best lives.

Brain Tumour Research
To find a cure for all types of brain tumours
To increase the UK investment in brain tumour research
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
Brain Tumour Research is determined to change this!
We are the only national charity in the UK focused on finding a cure for all types of brain tumours through campaigning to increase the national investment in brain tumour research to £35 million per year, while fundraising to create a network of seven sustainable Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence across the UK.
