Hightown have ended the year on a high note after raising over £8,000 for their chosen charity, The Collett School.

Throughout the year, members of the Hightown team have undertaken various fundraising activities including fancy dress days, raffle competitions, quiz nights and table tennis competitions.

Along with fundraising for The Collett School, Hightown staff have undertaken a number of other charitable activities during 2017, raising over £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK’s, Movember. Staff and residents at Hightown’s Watford and Hemel Hempstead Young People’s Service recently wrapped almost 50 Christmas gift boxes for children at Great Ormond Street Hospital which will be delivered on Christmas Eve.

David Bogle, Hightown Chief Executive said: “It’s been wonderful to see all of the Hightown team really get stuck in with all of our fundraising activities.  The Collett School is well known for its outstanding ethos, and we are delighted to have supported such a great cause.  It’s really encouraging to end the year on such a positive note and we look forward to continuing to make a real difference with our charitable work in the new year.”

Located on Lockers Park Lane in Hemel Hempstead, The Collett School is a purpose built all school for pupils aged 4-16 who have complex learning difficulties, including autism, speech and language communication needs and/or moderate learning disabilities.  It has been Hightown’s chosen charity for the past three years, during which time the housing association has raised a total of £20,000.
