The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance.Our main fundraising events during the Poppy Appeal are all about bringing our school community together by distributing poppies and inviting the children and their families to contribute to the British Legion which support organisations of ex-service men and help today's Service men and women, veterans, and their families. This year, LEH raised £81.63 for this important work.
The mission of Rotary Shoebox Scheme is to show God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.Each year in November, our LEH pupils and their families prepare a shoebox with gifts inside which the Rotary Club of Wetherby and Wharfedale deliver to children and families in Eastern Europe who live in very poor circumstances. This year, the president of the Rotary Club, Ian Vernon visited our school in Spring term to thank the children for their gifts and explain to the children all about the families who had benefited from the children's generosity.
