Civic Duty from Caldicott Boys

15 April 2020

 

It has been wonderful to see so many Caldicott boys take part in charitable work over the past few weeks. This is something we like to see, and do, all the time at Caldicott and it is a very important part of school life.

Some of the initiatives that boys have been involved in recently have been:

  • Reyess G (Year 6) and Raqueen G (Year 3) have raised £8000 to help buy food for marginalised communities in Malaysia.
  • Isaac B (Year 6) took part in the National Head Shave challenge and raised money for the NHS Charities.
  • Walter G (Year 6) and Saxon G (Year 3) along with their brother Ferdi (OC 2013 - 2019), handed out 800 Easter Eggs at Wexham Hospital and at local care homes in Gerrards Cross.
  • Max BS (Year 6) doing his bit for the environment and picking up litter on his daily exercise with his family.
  • Reuven H (Year 4) gave half of his birthday money to a Donkey Charity and said ‘Donkeys have helped humans for centuries and we should now care for them in return’.
  • Bingham D (Year 7) has been recycling his The Week Jr magazines which you can buy via his Just Giving page with all the money going towards the NHS Charities.
  • Jed H (Year 7) and family have teamed up with Pear Drops to help feed the homeless in London. Jed has been making sandwiches, delivering hot soup and serving food for the last three weeks in a bid to help those that are not able to get help during lockdown. If you would like to help or learn more, please contact The Dusty Yak Foundation.
  • Many rainbows being painted and given to hospitals and displayed outside homes as a sign of thanks, joy and respect for all the work of Key Workers.
  • Everyone in the Caldicott community taking part in the Read for Ruth Readathon raising money for the Ruth Strauss Foundation.

We always love to hear how boys are serving their community, and communities worldwide, so please do get in touch with your stories.
