Fairfield School links up with Charlton Farm

13 December 2019 chsw Fundraising

Pupils from Fairfield School in Backwell have been supporting their local children’s hospice in a variety of ways throughout 2019.

The Independent Day School is located just a few miles from Charlton Farm children’s hospice, which cares for children with life-limiting conditions who are not expected to reach adulthood. 

The school donated food collected at their Harvest festival to the local children’s hospice where they were gratefully received. Emma Parker, Community Fundraiser for the charity said: “We’d like to thank Fairfield’s children, staff and parents for their kind donations. Charlton Farm currently supports over 220 children and their families and food plays an important part in their stays. Families often tell us they cherish the chance to sit down and enjoy a freshly cooked meal together. Our services are free to families so we’re very grateful for the school’s wonderful donation.” Pupils also donated Jewellery kits which will be used by Charlton Farm’s dedicated Sibling Team.

Just this month, some pupils from the school visited Charlton Farm where they sang carols and performed with handbells – it was a treat for all the families and staff. Emma said: “We were delighted that the children from Fairfield visit came to visit us and help spread some festive cheer to the children and families staying, it was lovely!”
