School launches fundraising campaign to support Harrogate youngsters

Belmont Grosvenor School supporting The Rainbow Fund

7:01am 9th December 2017

Pupils, parents and staff at Belmont Grosvenor School in Birstwith have launched a new fundraising campaign to help poorly, disabled and disadvantaged children in Harrogate.

The school's charity for the year is The Rainbow Fund, which is run by parents who have been affected by prematurity, illness and life-limiting conditions in their children.

More than £160,000 has been raised since the charity was founded in 2016.

Trustees Caroline Carter and Manraj Sanghera visited Belmont Grosvenor to explain to pupils what The Rainbow Fund does and how pupils, parents and staff can support it.

Belmont Grosvenor, along with its Magic Tree Nursery, raises thousands of pounds for local good causes each year.

Earlier this month, the school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) handed over a cheque for £10,000 to Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity after 12 months of fundraising for Woodlands Ward.

Other charities supported by Belmont Grosvenor include the Children's Heart Surgery Fund, Horticap, Harrogate Homeless Project and Carers' Resource.

Hannah Parker, Charities Co-ordinator at Belmont Grosvenor School, said: "We very much look forward to working closely with The Rainbow Fund and coming up with lots of exciting ways to raise money for this great cause."

Trustee Manraj Sanghera added: "We are delighted that Belmont Grosvenor has selected The Rainbow Fund as their charity this year, and we look forward to working with the children to fundraise and to help us enhance the lives of Harrogate's most vulnerable children."

Emily Evans, Chair of Belmont Grosvenor School PTA, said: "Each year at Belmont Grosvenor School, we look for creative ideas to raise money for charity involving pupils, staff and the PTA. We are very much looking forward to supporting children in the Harrogate area through The Rainbow Fund."
