Meet our Charity Ambassadors:

Meet our new Charity Ambassadors. Darcie and Bonnie are both in Year 6 and are very much looking forward to taking on this new role. To mark their first day as Charity Ambassadors, the girls have recorded a podcast telling the viewers at home a little bit more about themselves, the charities they have decided to support and why they are so dear to them. To listen to this first podcast, please click on the play button.

The Ambassadors will be looking to offer a monthly podcast telling you all at home what they have been up to, what charity events are coming up, and how much money they have raised so far so please keep checking back for new information.

Those who are gracious to the poor lend to the Lord, and the Lord will fully repay them.”

Proverbs 19:17

Bonnie’s Charity:

What is MPS and who are the MPS Society

The MPS Society provides support across the UK to families affected by rare, life-limiting genetic conditions. MPS stands for mucopolysaccharidosis. These genetic conditions cause a range of complex difficulties and the MPS Society provide vital support to the whole family for as long as they need it.  The MPS Society supports over 1,600 families who have children with MPS conditions and related conditions.

Each condition has its own name, e.g. Hunter, Morquio, Hurler, Sanfilippo and Fabry. These conditions can be treated/managed to an extent but there is no cure.

The MPS Society support families in a range of ways; from educating them on the conditions and the support available to them; connecting families so they can share experiences/support each another; provide mindfulness courses for parents/carers and even organise days out for whole family to make memories and much, much more.

In order to provide this support they rely on fundraising, which is why I wanted to represent the MPS society in my role as Charity Ambassador.  Our family has been supported by the MPS society since my little brother was diagnosed with Hunter Syndrome (MPS II) in March 2020 when he was 4 years old.  I would like help raise awareness and money to support this charity that has supported my family and many other families going through the same.

Darcie’s Charity:


Tommy’s was founded in 1992 when two obstetricians- Dr Ian Fergusson  and Dr Anthony Kenney –  at St Thomas’ Hospital in London couldn’t and wouldn’t accept the lack of answers surrounding premature birth any longer. Together with one of their patients, Lucy Nelson, they decided to start a campaign raising money for pregnancy research projects. The campaign grew into Tommy’s charity. Tommys main mission is to make the UK  one of the safest countries in the world to give birth.

It is estimated that 1 in 4 babies are lost due to still births, miscarriages, and premature deaths. Tommys carries out world-leading research into pregnancy and baby loss. Tommys raises awareness of miscarriage, stillbirth, and premature birth.

I have chosen this charity because in 2011 my family lost my sister. My parents found Tommys and has been supporting them ever since. We don’t want anyone else to have to go through the same that we did.

My dad ,Duncan, has done incredible things to fundraise and donate to tommys. Including the five weeklong run from Lands End to John o Groats in Scotland. My mum, Helen, has helped by setting up an online auction during covid and coming up with many other ideas like a readathon.
