There is a strong tradition of fundraising for charity at Woldingham, encouraging girls to give back to their community.
Each House selects its own House Charity to support for the year, and organising events provides an opportunity for girls in different age groups to work together on a particular project. In addition, each tutor group organises its own charity event, with cake sales always proving popular!
Girls may also organise events for charities with which they have a close personal collection. We were very proud of Year 10’s Crazy Hair Day in March 2015, which raised over £570 to support the Head Start charity.
Woldingham is also actively engaged in an outreach programme to the local community, led by Father Devlin and assisted by girls from the Sixth Form. Through our links with the Cardinal Hume Centre, we work with the poor and marginalised. The girls also volunteer to visit local nursing homes, work in local charity shops and help local primary school children with their reading.
