SES wraps up another charitable year
Members of the Stamford Endowed Schools’ community have been getting in the festive spirit by participating in a number of Christmas related charitable activities over the past few weeks.
On Sunday 11th December, a group of SES runners donned their Santa suits to take part in the Rotary Santa Fun Run in Burghley Park. The runners were taking part in aid of the Evergreen Care Trust, a Stamford-based charity which cares and provides for senior citizens in the local area. The money is still being totted up, but so far the team have raised £264.50.
Helen Chew, charity co-ordinator at Stamford School, said “Everyone really enjoyed the day and there was a great sense of community.”
In another highly anticipated annual event, SES choir members visited lunch clubs run by the Evergreen Care Trust to sing Christmas carols, bringing festive cheer to clients of the Trust.
Stephen Roberts, Principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools, said “The Trust does a fantastic job caring for senior citizens in the local area and the Stamford Endowed Schools are very proud to support them. I am sure the clients enjoyed the visits as much as our choir did.”
To wrap up another successful term at SES, collections at the annual Christmas Services raised over £1,600 while the end-of-term mufti day at Stamford School raised £572.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to charitable activities in 2011.
