Knutsford based Yorston Lodge Prep School has partnered with Cheshire Community Foundation to ensure that vulnerable people in the local community receive the support they need.

Both staff and pupils at the school are passionate fundraisers and have a dedicated Charities Club, created by the pupils to ensure they raise awareness and funds for local worthy causes. This year Yorston Lodge has chosen to dedicate their fundraising activity to Cheshire Community Foundation focusing specifically on the organisation’s Knutsford Fund.

Dan Hatfield, Deputy Head at Yorston Lodge Preparatory School commented, “At Yorston Lodge we are passionate about giving our pupils the right tools to become responsible, ethical and informed global citizens and being part of an ongoing fundraising initiative is just one of the ways that we can help children to achieve this. By partnering with Cheshire Community Foundation both staff and pupils are able to support a range of charities in our local community which will be a fantastic achievement.”

Zoe Sheppard, CEO of Cheshire Community Foundation commented, “We are absolutely delighted that Yorston Lodge has made our Knutsford Fund the beneficiary of their fundraising activity this year. It will be a privilege to ensure that funds raised by the children, their friends and their families have the maximum impact in helping some of the most vulnerable people living locally.”

Yorston Lodge Preparatory School encourages children aged 3 to 11 to develop a life-long love of learning, supported by small class sizes, a nurturing environment and an enriched curriculum including advanced numeracy and literacy and a unique STEM focus.
