Helping Hands

Charity Fundraising

What we do ...

In school we try to make our students aware of things outside of school and give you opportunities to support charities which either have a link with our students or staff for whatever reason, or those who support the local or national community.

See below for our House Charities for this year.

Our House Charities for this year

Radnor House are supporting Julia's House - Julia's House is not a typical children's hospice.  They provide practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes; in the community, or at their hospices.

This year prefects are linked to each Head of House to spearhead charity fundraising efforts.  Everyone of us can find some way of supporting the House charities  It may be a sponsored silence, a fitness challenge or something more wacky - we all have the chance to shine!
