At the end of the day it's not about what you have or even what you have accomplished ... It's about who you've lifted up, who you've made better.  It's about what you've given back.

Denzel Washington

Giving

allows people to help and support others whilst at the same time making their lives more meaningful

Giving

can mean raising money or donating to charity, but it can also mean volunteering your time to listen to someone, making sure you smile at people and remain positive, give of your best to everyone you meet.

Giving

is both an opportunity and a responsibility

In school giving is one our trafalgar values and we define it as: 

I look for opportunities every day to serve other people and to make the world just that little bit better, in whatever way I can.  By doing this, I improve my own sense of self-worth.  I understand the importance of civic responsibility, of being a positively contributing member of society.
