Petworth House students raise £800: Crookhorn College’s fundraising story
Crookhorn College students have been busy raising money for us after receiving educational talks from our volunteers.
Crookhorn College in Waterlooville, Hampshire, presented Canine Partners with a fantastic cheque for £800 to help transform more lives with our amazing dogs.
The pupils plan and run a series of fundraising events throughout the year, regularly resulting in very generous cheques!
Canine Partners has a long standing partnership with Petworth House students at Crookhorn College, as the Charity delivers talks every year to their Year 8 students as part of their PSHE classes. The talks outline the work that we do to support the needs of people with significant disabilities.
Volunteer Education speaker Bev Scammell said:
“It’s been great to be able to integrate the work of the charity with the school curriculum. Our talks focus on the essential skills and attributes such as empathy, compassion and tolerance, as well as the importance of valuing and respecting diversity and working cooperatively”.
A huge thank you to Head of Petworth House Mr Gary Holman and his team of staff and pupils for their continued efforts and support.
