Fundraising at Ravensthorpe

Fundraising is an important part of our work at Ravensthorpe Junior School. We like to support our local area and, more widely, Britain and the rest of the world. Through fundraising, we are able to help those in need and make a positive impact in the lives of others.

Comic Relief/Red Nose Day

In March, we raised LOTS of money for Comic Relief!

Raising money for Beau...

In January, we wore our brightest rainbow colours in support of Beau. Click here to find out more about Beau and her illness. 

Thank you!

We are extremely lucky and grateful to have built relationships with local businesses. They have been kind enough to provide donations to school to support us with our fundraising activities for our children.

 A big thank you to:

  • The Rotary Club of Mirfield for donating £100 which was used to purchase new toys and games for playtime
  • Mullaco in Dewsbury for donating boxes of Cadbury Crème Eggs which were used to raise funds for Attendance rewards

Friends of Ravensthorpe

We have recently introduced a fundraising initiative at school called ‘Friends of Ravensthorpe’. We plan to hold fundraising events throughout the school year and rely on the support of parents, the community, staff and pupils to make these events successful.

The money raised at these events goes towards enhancing the time our children spend at Ravensthorpe CE (VC) Junior School and to improve our building and grounds.

 Our up-coming planned events will help to pay for

- Playground toys and equipment

- Garden maintenance and supplies for Gardening Club
