Castle Acre Church of England Primary Academy

Better Together

Charity of the Year

Every year, the children of Castle Acre Academy choose a charity to support; previous years have included the RNLI and Save the Children.

This academic year, 2018/19, following a presentation of three different charities all the children had a chance to vote for their favourite one by dropping a counter in the relevant box. After a hotly contested vote, the charity for this year is PACT Animal Sanctuary.

"PACT animal sanctuary rescues, rehabilitates, and where possible re-homes, neglected, injured and abandoned animals. Their speciality is 'problem animals', victims of physical or mental abuse, they are coaxed back to health, overcoming their behavioural distress, and restoring their dignity. In most cases these poor creatures would have had no option other than euthanasia. There are more than 1600 animals/birds being cared for at the sanctuary."

Throughout the year pupils will organise fundraising ventures for this very worthwhile charity, so do please support them when you can.

  • Animal art competition

    Published 19/03/19

    Our second fundraiser of the year for PACT that the children organised was an art competition with a theme of animals. Anyone could enter, and what a lot of entries there were! This made judging very difficult as the standard was so high. An entry fee was charged and prizes awarded to the winners in each age group.

    Well done to everyone involved - organisers, entrants and judges - a total of £47.21 was raised to add to our totaliser.
