Winter Jumper/Run Day – Wednesday 20th December

Dear Parents, Carers and Students

We are holding another exciting fundraising event this year in aid of a local charity, which will be held on the last day of term Wednesday 20th December. It is “The Chestnut Tree Charity Festive/Winter Jumper Run” and all pupils and staff are allowed to wear their festive jumpers to school on the condition that a £1 donation is donated to The Chestnut Tree House on their arrival at school.

The Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice is a local charity and caters for children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions. Their goal is to provide the best quality of life for children, young people and their families and to offer practical, social and spiritual support throughout each child’s life, however short it may be.

In order to raise as much money as we can, we have challenged every Patcham High School pupil to raise as much sponsorship as possible by completing a Winter/Festive Jumper Run of up to 5km around the school field. It is our hope that every pupil and member of staff will participate in this opportunity. The run itself can be as competitive as each pupil wants to make it, so essentially, it can be walked, jogged, run or a combination of all 3.

To sponsor your child for this event and to avoid the hassle of hundreds of sponsorship forms, we have a Just-Giving page for you to make your donation. Please follow the link:-

If pupils haven’t got a Winter/Festive Jumper and can’t get one, then it is not a problem. They can still make a donation to The Chestnut Tree House Charity; it certainly doesn’t mean they can’t participate in the run and get sponsored for doing so!

We would be hugely grateful if you could support us in this whole school challenge, which will not only be positive for everyone at Patcham High School, but will also benefit the pupils’ chosen local charity.

Yours sincerely
Ed Hall                                       Tom Brookes
