Charitable Outreach

Autumn Term 2023

Here at OLSB we have been working hard to raise money for the Dougie Mac Hospice.  The children voted for a whole school disco and put on their dancing shoes, a great time was had by all. We also held a coffee morning for parents and parishioners which was a huge success.  The Benedictines voted for a wear yellow day.

We all took part in the Christmas jumper day on December 8th.   

We are proud that we have  raised over £500 for this wonderful charity and continue to raise more. 


Our Advent appeal for this year was to make bags for the homeless.  We linked with the Parish and collected items such as hats, socks, gloves and toiletries - Our bags helped to spread the gift of warmth, hope and love to those who needed it the most. 



Spring Term 2024


This Lent we are joining school children all over the Archdiocese to raise money for Father Hudson’s Care. We will be collecting coins in specially designed envelopes. 

This year, at the end of the appeal, we hope to  celebrate Mass and hand over our fundraising donation.

We also held a school disco to support our fundraising for this charity.

we took part in the Father Hudson's walk a mile campaign. We walked from school to Hulton Abbey carrying the cross for our Lenten walk. We 'walked alongside' those in need just as Jesus did and raised money for this wonderful charity. We stopped and prayed for those in the world who need our help and support. Did you know that an a homeless person walks on average between 10 and 15 miles per day? We also pledged £1 per pupil.  


Summer Term 2024

For the Summer Term our chosen charity is the Jesuit Refugee Service. 


In today’s world, many people are forced to move because of war, famine, instability, or persecution. They may have to leave their native land against their will and seek protection elsewhere. At the end of 2022, there were 35.3 million refugees worldwide. We have chosen to support this charity.  We are all  asked to see Christ in others, especially refugees and migrants, and welcome with love

“You shall love the stranger as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God”. Leviticus 19:34
