Charitable Projects

Here, at Leicester Grammar School, a range of Charitable Projects are facilitated every year. The Charity Committee complements the House System, and academic departments such as Sport, Music and Prep, in creating and sustaining charitable initiatives locally, nationally and internationally.

The Charity Committee is led by a member of the teaching staff (currently Miss R Hadfield) and run by a select team of Sixth Form student volunteers. Recently, they have also been joined by Charity Ambassadors who are volunteers from the younger years. Every September, applications are taken from across the school to form the new teams.

Throughout the year, the Charity Committee organise a range of charitable activities and projects to raise money such as: cake sales, non-uniform days, book sales, and an annual disco. In addition, the Charity Committee also host collections for various food banks and charities. Over the past year, donated items have included Christmas gifts for disadvantaged children for Toys on the Table, Easter eggs for local food banks and a range of necessary items for the Turkey and Ukraine appeals.

During the year, the Charity Committee have raised money for the following charities:
