Charity at Beechwood
As part of their life at school, Beechwood pupils, from our youngest in Woodlands Nursery to our Top Formers, get involved in charity fundraising. They understand how important it is to show care and concern for others, to show respect for others and the environment around us, and develop personal responsibility to that they may become valuable members of the community.
We are proud that many of the fundraising initiatives come from the pupils themselves, and they often independently arrange charity events themselves.
Beechwood is proud to have supported a number of national and local charities; in particular, we have a long standing relationship with Keech Hospice Care, and have raised almost £250,000 in the last 20 years to support this fantastic local charity. This year, we have been thrilled to be part of the “Big Trunk Trail” and our own elephant, Beechy, joined the “herd” of elephants on display around Luton – you can find out more about this here
Locally, we have also been a major supporter of St Leonard’s Church in Flamstead as they raise funds to replace the church roof, raising £10,000 for this worthy local cause.
In 2020/21, the School has worked closely with Happy Days UK, raising funds through a variety of different events, competitions and donations, including a whole school sponsored walk, the hugely enjoyable “March of the Elephants”.
