Worcestershire Homeless Appeal

DNA Automotive Solutions in Worcester do a lot of work with the Worcestershire Homeless Appeal team keeping their vehicles on the road. They are in desperate need for men’s clothing, especially as we are approaching the colder seasons.

The owner of DNA Automotive Solutions is a parent of our school. As a family, they went out a couple of weekends ago and helped with the street kitchen, handing out clothes and bags. The High Sheriff of Worcestershire was present along with Team Homeless.

If anyone would like to donate any men’s clothing to this very worthwhile cause, please contact DNA Automotive Solutions on 01905 755088. Due to the current COVID-19 guidance within our school, we are unable to accept any donations into school. Please arrange for any donations to go directly to DNA Automotive Solutions.

“We feel it’s really important the kids learn how we all have the ability to make somebody else’s life better. Our children really made them smile which was so warming to see. I feel it was really important for both of the kids to really see first hand and understand that there are others nowhere near as fortunate as us and the difficulties that they face. Both kids took a lot from the evening.” David – owner of DNA Automotive Solutions


Santa Dash 

On Friday 9th December 2022, all of the children and staff at school took part in the annual Hartlebury Primary School Santa Dash.

The children had a fantastic time dashing, skipping, sprinting and waddling around our snowy, Santa dash course!

Thank to everybody who worked really hard to raise lots of money for our wonderful PTA.

What a great way to keep fit and support our brilliant school!

We can’t wait until next year!

Please look at some more of our fabulous photos in our Gallery.

Thank You

Millie and Eadie came up with the idea that they wanted to collect money and items to make up individual bags to be handed out to people living on the streets in Worcestershire. They planned 4 Fab Fundraising Fridays and added in Comic Relief to make it FIVE! I want to THANK YOU ALL personally because they raised far more than they ever expected and none of this was possible without your help, generosity and support. They have been able to create 50 bags to be handed out and are making a donation of £116. The bags will be distributed by Maggs Day Centre in Worcester.

We are SO proud of every ones’ efforts.

Comic Relief raised £191.85

Children In Need

On Friday 13th November 2020, we all came to school dressed in spots for Children In Need. We joined in the virtual visit from Pudsey Bear which was presented by radio Hereford and Worcestershire.

In the afternoon, Year 4 had a go at drawing their very own Pudsey Bear. The children all put in a great deal of effort and we had some fantastic drawings!

Well done Year 4.

The total raised so far for Children In Need is £134.00.

Thank you to everyone who made this fantastic total possible. We are always very grateful for your support.

Please look at more of our fabulous photos in our Gallery.

School Council Sponsored Sports Circuit Event

Following our Acorns Children Hospice Assembly on Wednesday 24th May, we attach a sponsorship form (paper copies available from the office) for our first Hartlebury Primary Sports Skills Circuit!

This event will be taking place on Friday 16th June, around the school playground to raise money for this year’s chosen charity.

By taking part, we are hoping to raise as much money as we can for the children’s chosen charity and we will kindly be asking family and friends who are able to support us, for sponsorship of children who are taking part in this fundraising challenge. Any monies raised should be put in a sealed envelope with your child’s details and sponsorship form by Friday 14th July. Alternatively, donations can be made on the School’s JustGiving page found here: https://www.justgiving.com/page/hartleburyschool

The event is being organised by the School Council and the children will be challenged to complete a sports skill for 15 minutes around the playground. Children can skip, dribble a football, use a hockey stick and ball, bounce a basketball or balance a tennis ball on a racket, all whilst moving around a circuit. The challenge is to complete the course as many times as you can within the timeframe.

A big, big thank you in advance of this exciting event.

Homeless Help Bags

A few months ago, myself and Eadie decided we wanted to help the homeless. We came up with the idea to make some homeless help bags that would contain essential items that they may need sleeping rough. To enable us to achieve this, we did five fundraising Fridays at school.

On week one we did our ‘donation station’ and with all your donations we managed to make 24 bags with just that one fundraiser!

On week two the school was raising money for comic relief but they support the homeless anyway.

On week three we did our dress down day and everyone was very generous .

On week four, we did the raffle for Mother’s Day and the staff from school all made a donation towards the two hampers. Mrs Unitt’s daughter made a fabulous cake!

On our final week we did a cake sale and thank you to everyone that donated cake to us.

Thanks to everyone’s help we have managed to raise an incredible £347.00 which has given us enough money to make 50 bags and donate just over £100.00 to the charity.

We are going to MAGGS Day Centre , Worcester on the 3rd June to hand over the bags so that they can be distributed to the homeless. Free radio are covering our story and this will hopefully be aired over half term.

Thank you very much to all the staff, pupils and parents at Hartlebury primary that have supported and helped us make the homeless bags a reality. Please see more photos in our gallery.

Many Thanks

Millie and Eadie

Tesco Vote – Hartlebury reception children hoping for new climbing equipment

Pupils at Hartlebury CE Primary School are hoping “every little helps” in their bid to win first place in the Tesco Community Grant vote, which runs until the end of September.

With three worthy bids for customers to choose from, the school is set to bag at least £500 but hopes enough shoppers will choose their Early Years Outdoor Area project to win first place and £1,500.

Worn-out wooden climbing equipment had to be removed so funds are needed for modern alternatives to support the physical and social development of the Pre-School and Reception Class children.

Thank you to Annie in Reception Class, who sent us this lovely picture of her voting for our fabulous school. Every little helps!

Oscar’s Day

We are supporting a little boy, called Oscar, who attends Pitmaston Primary School in Year 1. He is very poorly and requires a 2nd stem cell transplant which his parents have to fund.

We invited all our children to come to school on Friday 11th October 2019 dressed in their home clothes for a donation to his fund. We are very pleased to be able to donate £216.01 to Oscar’s fund.

Thank you to everyone who helped support this very worthy cause.

We were so grateful for all of your donations. We even featured in the Kidderminster Shuttle.

Children wore their Christmas jumpers, hats and tinsel and dashed around the playground for 15 minutes, trotting like reindeers, stomping like snowmen and skipping like elves.
