Support Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College
Here at Blessed Thomas Holford we have a team of Ambassadors to run lots of Fundraising initiatives which from Year 7 to Year 13 your child can get involved in! Along with events planned for parents and pupils we have a number of ways parents/ carers and other family members can support Blessed Thomas Holford's fundraising efforts.
Fundraising for the Future is our registered school charity which is set up to help us raise money to invest in new and exciting things around our school to enrich our pupils education and create a fantastic school environment. So far our efforts have allowed us to purchase IT Equipment, PE Equipment and Team Kits along with Musical Instruments and even a Mini Bus!
Lots of our current fundraising is in anticipation of our new build which we are planning to fund lots of new and exciting equipment for both the classrooms and the new state of the art sports facility.
