At Pinewood, whether it is supporting causes and projects near to home or looking further afield, helping others is built into day-to-day life.
Throughout the year there are several fundraising events that the children throw themselves into wholeheartedly – we are regularly represented in the Marlborough Triathlon, run in aid of Restless Development, and the Race For Life in aid of Breast Cancer Research UK, as well as the Ridgeway Run. These are all much looked forward to events in the Pinewood calendar.
We continue to strengthen our ties with local schools and have developed a particularly close relationship with Bishopstone Primary School, which we invite to different events, workshops, and performances throughout the year.
Further afield, we continue our support of St John’s First the Baptist School in Shonda, Mombasa. We have been supporting the school for over 10 years now, through collections and different fundraising events and it is wonderful to see the progress that the school has made.
“Pupils’ social awareness is excellent… [They] fulfil their responsibilities in a positive fashion, contributing excellently to the lives of others in the school, as well as those who live in the local community and further afield.”
