We think that not only do we have a responsibility to care for those in our community who need help, either directly or through fundraising for charities, but we should share in what those around have a passion for and think is important. St. Mary’s Hospice is incredibly important to some of those closest to us due to family and friends having spent the latter part of their lives there experiencing the care they can provide. As Keble House Pastoral Manager, Miss Harding first brought her whole house together to raise the most amount of money for her chosen charity during a House fundraising competition. As the winners of this challenge, they were awarded a further amount straight from the pocket of the Headteacher as a reward! This first instalment to the Hospice was £301, and was gratefully received during an assembly by a representative of the charity who spoke about the work they do. Following that, a more ambitious plan was hatched for a Moseley School Bake Off – a hundred cakes being sold throughout one day to staff, students, parents and whoever passed through that day. Some walked away with a snack, others were impressed enough to bid on a whole cake! 

This brought in a fundraising total of £557 – a massive help towards the work the hospice does. Sometimes we don’t like to think about what might happen to those we love at the end of their lives, but our students here have bravely committed to understand, engage, and help one of our local charities that is there to offer the right and best care possible. We are very proud of them.
