Calling All Local Charities

Once again, Hymers College, the independent school based in Hull, is appealing to charities to apply to become one of their two Charities of the Year for 2018.

The Hymers College Charity Committee are again hoping to find two local charities that they could support though various fundraising events and activities held by the pupils during 2018.   Through the events held, the school are also hoping to help raise the profile of the charities they are supporting.  The pupils are pledging to raise £2000 in total (£1000 per charity).

Mrs Mason who is overseeing the committee has said

We are hoping to find two new relatively small charities that would benefit greatly from the money raised.  Any charity from Hull, East Riding or North Lincolnshire can apply, there are no restrictions as to the type of charity.  We have been supporting PAUL for brain recovery and The Ellie Penrose Fund during 2017 and hope to find two new charities that the pupils can support.

The only criteria is that the charity has to be a local charity and not a National charity, this also includes individuals raising money for a National Charity.

Please email charity@hymers.org for an application form.  Once all completed forms are returned, the whole school will vote for their favourite two charities.  The two successful charities will be announced before Christmas.
