Danes Hill School in Oxshott hosted The Big Draw, a community event to raise money for the Oasis Children’s Trust.
The event brought pupils and parents together to create an art project.
The school’s dining room was transformed into an art studio and special guest Steve Chapman hosted the evening. Steve is an artist who works to encourage self-expression and creativity.
The evening consisted of a raffle with art prizes and a silent bid to win two pieces of Steve Chapman’s work. The evening raised £1,068 for the Oasis Children’s Trust.
Head of Danes Hill School, Maxine Shaw, said: ‘A Danes Hill education is a privilege and with that privilege comes the responsibility to give back. This wonderful family event, to support families who are struggling, was wonderful to be part of. The Big Draw was an opportunity to bring the school community together in celebration of World Mental Health Day whilst raising funds for a very worthy cause.’
The school has supported the Oasis Children’s Trust throughout the whole term by carrying out events to raise money for the charity.
The Trust supports vulnerable families and children in Elmbridge and nearby areas. Their services include outreach, crisis support, legal services, emotional wellbeing and their Christmas Appeal. This Christmas the money raised from the schools’ Christmas food hampers will be donated to Oasis Children’s Trust.
