At Ifield Community College we feel strongly that supporting charities is an integral part of school life and that it is important for us all to think of those who are in need. We are determined to do our best in raising as many donations as possible knowing that they have a significant impact on the local community and society as a whole.
Students and staff at ICC are regularly involved in fundraising for various charities throughout the year. Our Student Council holds meetings with the school tutor representatives to think of innovative ideas about how to raise money for these events.
In the month of July 2016 we did our very first sponsored charity walk named 'The Sarah Robinson Commemorative Walk' to celebrate the 50th anniversary of when The Sarah Robinson School and Ifield Grammar School amalgamated. The whole school participated, we walked to Tilgate Park and back, a total of 8.3 miles/13.5k and 19,000 steps. The sponsored walk is an annual event that students take part in to help raise funds for local charities.
