Rahma (Mercy) Jan – April 2020
Our new charity for this half term is launched by representatives of Rahma (Mercy). Rahma (Mercy) is a U.K registered charity (charity No. 1097682) which has been working in the Balkans Since 1999 to help communities in the region break out of the vicious cycle of poverty. Their vision is to empower communities through education so that they can fulfil their social obligations to others.
Pupils and staff are extremely excited to embark on a journey to support the education of those in Albania.
Members of the Rahma (Mercy) charity institute delivered the project we will be working on this half term. Albania is extremely deprived in terms of religious institutes and therefore they are building a boarding school for girls. We want to support this cause as much as possible and the aim is to try and embed gratitude in our hearts and make the girls understand that we are blessed in all ways, so it is our duty to help our sisters.
The dropbox link below will give you access to 3 videos. 1 is of the Madrasah Students, 1 is of the Rahma Institute and the final one is 20 years of Rahma video which will give the parents a bit more background on Rahma’s history.
St Catherine’s Hospice Oct – Dec 2019
Our charity for this half term is St Catherine’s Hospice. The hospice cares for patients and families across Chorley, Preston and South Ribble who are affected by life-shortening conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure. Their specialised care is to help people enjoy the best possible quality of life, to the end of life. They work with patients and their loved ones at the hospice and in their own homes to help them achieve what is important to them in the time they have.

Pupils visited St Catherine’s Hospice where they had a wonderful experience and were delighted to be given a tour by the friendly staff and presentations were delivered by the nurses and fundraising team. Pupils were moved by the tremendous work the hospice carries out and many are considering completing their work experience there.
Thank you from Miss Ahmed
A heartfelt thank you to all the teachers and pupils who have placed remarkable effort into creating season’s greeting hampers for St Catherine’s Hospice. They looked absolutely beautiful! Each hamper was made with so much love and sincerity that only the Almighty can reward you fully.
Heartfelt thank you message from Barbara Hodgson from St Catherine’s Hospice:
“I can’t put into words just how much your gift hamper meant to me. I cried so much at the thought, effort and love that had been put into making the hamper. To have such wonderful girls is a credit to your school”.
Letter from St Catherine’s Hospice:
Hi Mrs Ahmed,
First of all, can I thank you on behalf of everyone at St Catherine’s Hospice, for the kindness and generosity that Preston Muslim Girl’s School has shown. We were all blown away this morning
by what the students have achieved. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all who helped put the hampers together…I am sure their families also had a big hand in what was donated, so please pass on our thanks to them as well.
I hope you all enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasure to take you all round and what a pleasant and well-mannered bunch of students.

Macmillan Coffee Morning – Friday 27th Sept
We hosted a coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan is the UK’s leading organisation that provides support for people living with cancer. Once a year Macmillan hosts a national coffee morning and invites people all over the UK to host their own coffee mornings and to make donations.
We raised a smashing total of £1,031.51. We hope the money raised will help those affected by cancer. We know that one in two of us will face cancer, and the money we raised at our coffee morning will hopefully help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.
