School Charity

Supporting William Henry Smith School Through the Smith Foundation

We have been supporting several charities over the last 10 years, and given that the school is a charity itself, we have taken the decision to focus on setting ourselves various challenges and raising funds for WHSS over the next two years. We will continue to support the charities we have built partnerships with, such as SmartMove (Calderdale’s Homeless) and ones we have supported for many years, such as McMillan and Jeans for Genes. We have also committed to organising our own fun run in memory of Janice and in support of Cancer Research.

We are anticipating that every member of the school’s community (staff and students) will commit to one challenge or fund raising activity during each year. Miss Shari has already generated strong commitment from a team of over 50 staff who are looking forward to the challenge of Total Warrior in June this year and by now you know our Principal’s very Yorkshire challenge as she prepares to race with a load of 20kg in the World Coal Carrying Championships in April this year. If you would like to sponsor either of these events, you can do it through the school’s website or at reception where sponsor sheets are at the ready. Thank you.

We are hoping too that some families will get involved in organising events, perhaps having a stall at the Easter Fayre or having a car boot sale. We would really like to work with anyone who would like to take the lead representing our families and joining us in organising a calendar of events for 2020/2021.  

We do appreciate your support, so please get in touch.
