On Thursday, 24th March, we will be holding a fundraising non-uniform day to support aid in Ukraine. We are inviting children to wear blue and yellow, for the Ukrainian flag, or white, to represent peace, in return for a donation.
We will donate the money raised via the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to support their Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. The appeal raises funds to provide food, water, shelter and healthcare to refugees and displaced families. At times of crisis, the DEC brings together 15 leading UK aid charities (including the British Red Cross, Oxfam, Action Aid and Save the Children UK) to raise funds quickly and efficiently.
We are asking for donations for the non-uniform day to be made through a Just Giving page, so the money goes straight to the charity. The link can be found here:

We will also be accepting voluntary donations on the day should you prefer.
