Hope and Homes for Children is a global expert in the field of deinstitutionalisation. By closing institutions, supporting children into loving, stable families and working with governments to tackle the root causes of family breakdown, they are working towards a day where orphanages have been eradicated for good.
Hope and Homes for Children is our School Charity. This means that at Hawkesdown House School, we continue to fundraise for this charity each and every year. Through the sale of lightly used school uniform, our Christmas Family Evening and our All In Fun Days, every penny raised through these events goes to help children around the world who do not have the stable and loving home that our children are lucky to have.
At Hawkesdown House School we are proud to support Genetic Disorders UK with their Jeans for Genes Day each September. The children wear jeans instead of their school shorts or dresses and donate at least £1 to the charity.
Each September, our School Council organises and runs our Macmillan Coffee Morning for parents. All money raised from this event goes to Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that supports people and helps them to live their lives as fully as they can whilst battling this disease. Their help is totally focused on each person, so everyone receives the support that’s best for them.
