Rastrick High School are proud supporters of The Howarth Foundation, and will join our top performers at this year’s Music Extravaganza to raise as much money as possible. Here’s what Rastrick’s Head Teacher, Steve Evans has to say:

“Supporting charities and developing and nurturing local and wider community links are an intrinsic part of life at Rastrick High School and we are proud to support The Howarth Foundation.

We were therefore delighted to be invited to take part in the Music Extravaganza where our Award winning Choir will join other top performers in an evening of live music in support of the charity.

As a school, we will be doing as much as possible to support The Howarth Foundation in whatever way we can, helping them continue to deliver on going assistance to the homeless community of Kirklees and Leeds.  Students develop empathy for others through planning, organisation, hard work, and raising funds for chosen charities. They will learn more about homelessness in assemblies and take a moment to consider those less fortunate than themselves.  We are hoping our students will be inspired to think of ways of fundraising when they realise how difficult and isolating it is to be homeless. They will learn how their support can empower vulnerable homeless people, and others in crisis, to transform their lives and help those who are excluded from mainstream society.”

The team at Howarths People & Safety Management are very much looking forward to hosting this extremely popular event, and with just three tables remaining, the night will prove to be another great success!
