Charities at Buckstone PS

This year at Buckstone Primary School, each year group will be supporting and raising awareness of a chosen charity. We will be highlighting the meaning of a charity as ‘helping others in need’. This may be an animal charity, environmental charity or a health charity. Once we have decided our charities we will update our website to highlight which charity your child will be advocating.

We look forward to supporting and raising awareness of different charities throughout the school and hope that you will enjoy hearing all about it from your child.
