Last week we held our Gift Assembly. Many of the children brought in presents for local children who have been referred to the Salvation Army for support this Christmas.

The collection was in conjunction with the Salvation Army’s ‘Gift from The Heart’ initiative, which collects gifts from shoppers at Bromley’s INTU centre, and the children’s gifts were accepted by Mrs Dawn Derham on behalf of the SA. Dawn was overwhelmed by the generosity of Tubbenden children, whose gifts filled two large cars completely!

Thanks to everyone who donated, and WELL DONE TUBBENDEN!

Amazing Generosity!

You’ll recall that a few weeks ago we held an ‘own clothes’ day to raise money for ‘ShelterBox’, who send a ‘home-in-a-box’ to areas where they are needed in the World. Our aim was to raise enough for two boxes, at £590 each.

Since then one of our pupils, Olivia, raised a further £37.75 through being sponsored to stay silent!

We also collected at each of our Christmas productions. We are delighted to inform you that in all we raised an incredible £2371.17, which is enough for just over FOUR SHELTER BOXES! Well done everybody, and many thanks for your support.

Carol Singing at Intu, Bromley

‘On behalf of everyone at Bromley Mencap I am writing to thank you and the school choir for taking part in our Carol Singing Day at Intu Shopping Centre last Thursday. I hope that the children enjoyed the occasion.  Their singing was absolutely wonderful and a great start to the festive season.

I am delighted to inform you that we collected £1,567 which I am sure you will agree is an amazing sum of money and will make a big difference to us.’

We enjoyed a delightful Gift Assembly this morning which was attended by Dawn Derham from the Bromley Salvation Army. Once again we were overwhelmed by the generosity shown by parents, staff and children alike. You can see in the pictures, the amazing collection of toys and games that were donated for children who are experiencing particular difficulties in their lives at the moment. At least 25 large boxes of toys were collected. The children enjoyed thinking about giving and receiving presents and what we all need most in our lives.

Thank you once again for your very kind donations and wonderful support.

A Fantastic Response from our Community

As you know we have been collecting money to raise funds to purchase two ‘Shelter Boxes’ for people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines. Each box costs £590.

I am absolutely thrilled to be able to inform you that at the time of writing our collection has so far raised a magnificent: £1,382.25, meaning that we can pay for at least two boxes! There is still more money to come!

Well done Tubbenden Primary School!


Lots of children took action to raise extra amounts.

In 6S Charlie raised over £20 by pestering his family and neighbours, Leah raised £15 and Luke, after placing a bucket and appeal poster in his parents’ shop, raised £157.89!

Children in 6T also got stuck into fundraising by selling cakes and biscuits around the school, raising £71.19.
