Polwhele House Gives Charities Windfall

14th February 2013

Polwhele House

Truro based ISA school Polwhele House, has been busy raising funds for a number of local and national charities over recent months including Truro Food Bank, Children’s Hospice South West, Air Ambulance and Children In Need.

A grand total of £2,025 has been raised by parents, pupils and staff from the school through a number of fun and exciting activities including a cocktail party and annual Christmas Bazaar.

Money is not the only thing that has been collected to help local charities. Regular clothing collections have taken place at the school for Children’s Hospice South West since June 2012.

Sacks of clothes that have become too small for their owners have been donated to be passed on to support those in need, in an initiative where children are helping other children.

Polwhele House Headmaster, Alex McCullough said:

“The various activities have brought a great deal of enjoyment for our pupils, their families and our staff.  I would particularly like to thank the organisers of the events; their hard work and generosity will now help many more people through the services of these charities.”
