Red Oaks Primary SchoolChristmas Toy Appeal is BACK – COLLECTING NOW until Thursday 2nd December 2020

The Swindon Christmas Toy Appeal is returning again this year. Thank you for all your support in 2020 when we collected for the first time at Red Oaks Primary School. The outcome for the Appeal was hugely successful: with 5,823 gifts being distributed across the town and an additional £10,000 was raised.
This was also supported with a food hamper for all the families in need.
Red Oaks would like to support this appeal again. Between Monday 22nd November and Thursday 2nd December we are inviting staff and pupils to voluntarily buy a present for a child between the ages of 0-16 years old. Please bring it to school, drop off under the umbrella at the front of the school where you will see a trolley every morning.
We ask that the presents are NOT WRAPPED as the recipients' parents would usually do this. If you would like, we would also accept donations of Christmas wrapping paper.
You may like to add a tag to the box with a message and /or age range. For further information please visit Swindon Christmas Toy Appeal

Friday 19th March - COMIC RELIEF - We raised £388.50
This year’s comic relief couldn't have come at a better time, as we were all in need of a good laugh! The children took part in a KS1 and KS2 Red Oaks quiz at school and teachers shared funny video clips throughout the day to keep the giggle momentum going. Staff and children all came dressed for the occasion too, with crazy hair and fantastic socks !

We celebrated Christmas Jumper Day on Monday 14th December. We wore our craziest, loudest, most FUN Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children. This money goes towards helping those children who need it the most!

Christmas spirit.

Children In Need 2020
Red Oaks and Charity Club are tremendously grateful for all of your donations to our charities so far this year (Big Breakfast Plus and Christmas Shoe Box Appeal) and we understand this is a difficult time for some. Because of this, we did not ask donations on 13th November for Children In Need. However, as this was a National campaign we recognised it as a school and directed parents to the national donation page if they wished to donate.

Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2020 - We raised £520.
Millions of people enjoy celebrating Christmas. Perhaps some of us will appreciate the season more in this strangest of years, but for many vulnerable children and families Christmas will be another reminder of their isolation and poverty. FSCI's Christmas box appeal brings joy to thousands of marginalised families and individuals in Serbia and Bulgaria every year.

And after a fantastic year last year, we decided to show our support now more than ever, but in a different way. As we couldn’t collect items this year, we asked for a small monetary donation so that the volunteers of the FSCI could buy the items, package them, wrap them and deliver them safely in time for Christmas.

On Friday 6th November we encouraged children to wear the colours of the Bulgarian or Serbian flag in exchange for a monetary donation to ParentPay. By donating to the appeal in this way we helped to ensure that they have enough boxes for girls, boys and adults too.

The Big Breakfast Plus 2020 - We raised £252.
For the second year running we supported 'The Big Breakfast Plus' but our support looked a little different this year.
'The Big Breakfast Plus' usually a provide hot, freshly cooked breakfast for homeless people in Swindon, 7 days a week. This means they usually make over 7,000 breakfasts every year! However, due to Covid-19 they have been unable to do so and have been supporting homeless people in other ways. Lockdown was difficult for us all, but can we imagine what it would be like to be homeless and that one morning breakfast you would count on to get you though the day, has also gone.
On the day, a representative joined us virtually during our assembly to talk to us about how they coped during the outbreak and how they have continued to support the homeless throughout. This day was also a non-school uniform day.
