Friday 10th July 2020 was meant to be the 15th Chauncy Community Day.
The idea behind Community Day is that the entire school pulls together to do something for our wider community.
We usually work on projects with nurseries, primary schools, special schools, care homes, village halls, local charities, the police, the fire service, local supermarkets and churches.
Community Day involves everyone at Chauncy School and over 2000 people in Ware and the villages participate in activities on the day.
Sadly, due to COVID-19 we find ourselves unable to run what is always a hugely successful and enjoyable day.
It would be good if we could retain the spirit of Community Day and do something kind for someone on Friday 10th July instead. Being very mindful of social distancing and observing the current coronavirus rules, this could be:
Helping a family member or relative with a task at home or in the garden.
- Doing something for a charity.
- Carrying out a litter pick.
- Writing a letter to someone who is shielding or living in a care home.
- Baking or cooking something nice for someone who can’t get out of the house.
- Writing a message to frontline workers who have been heroic in fighting this pandemic.
Just make sure your activity is safe and get your parents’ permission first.
Please send me a photo or short video of your Community Day Acts of Kindness and I will celebrate our efforts on our website and social media.Please e-mail your evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this e-mail. Please do this on Friday 10th July 2020 if possible.
Everyone who participates will receive a Community Day Commendation which will be worth a Gold Award.
