Each year Witham Hall chooses a charity whose aims and commitment to the local community correlate with the School’s ethos and values. This year we have chosen the Bourne-based charity, Don’t Lose Hope, which offers professional counselling services for all members of the community from age four upwards. These services are provided by a team of professionally qualified counsellors and are offered to anyone who needs them, regardless of their financial means. Don’t Lose Hope staff and volunteers also advocate the importance of looking after our mental health with schools and at community events. Witham Hall Pre-Prep uses the Don’t Lose Hope 'Worry Monsters' in every classroom – if a child has a concern or worry, they can jot them down and feed them to their classroom 'Worry Monster' to help release their concerns and encourage communication.
The Friends of Witham, parents, staff and children work together throughout the year to help raise funds through events and sponsorship to support the important work they do in the region.
2021 Fun Run
The Witham Hall Fun Run will take place on Friday 30th April and all sponsorship proceeds raised by the children will support Don’t Lose Hope. Eddy Bear, the Don’t Lose Hope mascot, will be there to start the race and cheer staff and children on around the course. Staff and pupils will represent their House in house colours and will have a chance to dress up for the occasion. The 2021 Fun Run Sponsorship Form can be found here. Please remember, by ticking the Gift Aid declaration box we can claim a further 25p for every £1 donated, so do encourage sponsors to make a declaration if they qualify.
