Fundraising and Community events 

Our school family participates in a wide range of fundraising and community events to support others as part of our responsibility as local, national and global citizens. We do these things as part of our mission to spread the Good News, and because it is what we were called to do as followers of Christ.

Dougie Mac bring a pound day



Ukrainian refugee appeal


Rotary Shoebox Appeal

Charity Campaigns

At St Wulstan's, we have a three different ways that we support a range of charities within our school community.

Whole school charity focus - one per term.

Whole school charity projects which link to our liturgical seasons.

Charity projects led by specific year groups or classes which link to their current learning and are often child-initiated. 

Each term, we focus on one whole school charity. In 2023-2024, we will be aiming to further involve our parents as much as possible in our fundraising.


Below are the details of our whole school charity plan for 23/24:

A huge thank you to David from CAFOD who gave up his time to speak to us about the Walk Against Hunger Campaign. We are looking forwards to making a Global difference and helping those in need, together as a community.

Take a look below at recent fundraising and community events:

Many of us take part in activities which support the wider community in our own time too. Take a look below at how we are living out our faith and vocations and following our call from God:

"Sophie is a Scout at St Wulstan's scout group but she volunteers to come and help at Beavers every week. She is a real asset, helping organise games for them all. The Beavers really like her!"

Eli and his sister Hattie are true Eco Warriers! They can regularly be found at weekends litter picking in our local area with their dog, Walt. Well done to both of you! What an inspiration...

We were very grateful that some staff and pupils took time out of their half term holidays we help revamp our beautiful prayer garden. What a super place for our learners to use for their private worship and liturgies...

Olivia in Year 1 has recently used her own pocket money to purchase donations to give to our local food bank. Well done Olivia!

George entered a competition run annually by Thompsons Solicitors, to design a picture for the firm's Christmas card to celebrate their 100th year. George came runner up and his design will feature on the back of the cards sent to their clients and contacts. George was also able to nominate a school or charity to receive a donation of £100, which very generously he has given to the school! Thank you very much George!

CHRISTMAS LOVE: Four of our amazing pupils all took time out on Sunday along with their dance school, MB Dance Centre to perform for the residents of Bagnall Heights. Once they had finished their performance, instead of going home, they stayed to talk to the residents and spread the Christmas joy, cheer and love.

REMEMBRANCE: during the month of November some of our children have been supporting the Royal British Legion by selling poppies in ASDA. Many of our wonderful children also took part in the Wolstanton Remembrance Parade showing reverence and compassion. Well done to St Wulstan’s Cubs and Beavers.
