Charity Objects

“In co-operation with the School community, to advance the education of the pupils of Uffculme School, Birmingham,; in particular to engage in fundraising activities and seek charitable donations in order to provide facilities and equipment which support the School and provide extended opportunities for pupils which would not otherwise be readily available.”

Trustees:

  • Mrs Denise Thomas (Chair)
  • Mr David Spilsbury
  • Mrs Denise Whittle
  • Mrs Claire Allbut
  • Mrs Sue Burton
  • Mr Matthew Scarrott Ex Officio
  • Mrs Rachel Norton (Secretary)

The Trustees meet regularly and make grants to Uffculme School to support residential visits and purchase of equipment/resources. The Trust seeks and makes bids to other charitable organisations which support these aims.

In 2016 Uffculme Trust was successful in bidding and receiving the following grants, and would like to thank all these charities for their valued support:

£5,000 from the Douglas Turner Trust;
£1,000 from The Eveson Charitable Trust;
£1,000 from The Edward Cadbury Charitable Trust
£2,000 from Grantham Yorke Trust

Additionally parents and families, staff, supporters and trustees raise and donate sums to Uffculme Trust.  Other donations have been received in memory of a family member.
To these people the Trustees wish to record their grateful thanks.

Whenever possible, the Trust reclaims tax paid through the Gift Aid scheme.
There is also an opportunity to donate through Just Text Giving (text UAAS11 to 70070).

The Trust has contributed to the following school residential visits in 2016/17:

KS4 Skiing
KS3 visit to Red Ridge
KS2 visit to Wingate Centre
KS2 visit to Macaroni Woods
KS3-5 visit to Wingate Centre

These contributions allow the school to offer residential visits to all pupils at a much reduced cost.

The Trustees receive feedback from staff and pupils following residential visits, and these are truly a highlight.
In 2017 the Trust contributed £3,000 to the school for outdoor gym equipment, and continue to bid for funds (£5,000 in 2018).
