Charity of the Year

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.
