Our Academy Operations Lead has introduced a charity project into the Academy for the academic year, to enable our children to work together to raise money for causes close to our hearts. We feel it will be a great project and team building activity for the children, as well as allowing us as an Academy to show how much we care about others and our community.
Each year group has been assigned to a particular charity that they are to raise money for throughout the school year. This will include different fund raising activities and we have encouraged the children to use their imagination on thinking of ways to make money!
We have arranged for a display board to be put up in school showing how much each class have raised, which will motivate them to compete and do more.
At the end of the year, the chosen charities will be invited in to school to be presented with a cheque from the children.
Parents/Carers keep a look out for any updates on children’s work and any news on how much money we have raised so far.
Good luck to our children and staff at E-ACT, we look forward to starting this project together as a team.

In the first term, E-ACT Blackley academy raised a whopping £2373.95 for all of our charities!
Due to the pandemic, we had to put our fundraising on hold and stop any fun activities the pupils and staff had planned for the rest of 2020 🙁
However, this year we have since managed to raise some extra cash since restrictions have eased, which now totals up to a staggering £6092.93!!!! Wow
And that’s a wrap
Thank you for everyone’s hard work and support.
Well done everyone!
