Cumnor at Christmas

Things may look a little different this year for all of us, but Christmas at Cumnor is still an incredibly special time when the strength of our school community shines through. This Christmas we have decided to support Home-Start CHAMS, a fantastic organisation who have been supporting local families for 22 years and aim to give vulnerable young children the best possible start in life. At the heart of the charity is a network of trained volunteers who are providing vital support, particularly for young or new parents and those facing mental health challenges, offering a lifeline to make positive change. 


This year’s silent auction is packed with amazing opportunities to make 2021 a more memorable year! Bidding will commence at 8am Monday 7th December and more information on each lot can be found by following the links below. Thank you for supporting Home-Start CHAMS and good luck! 

Bidding closes at midday 16th December with winners announced later that day.

Thanks to a very generous donation from Haywards Heath Iceland, we will be donating 40 food hampers to local families who are in desperate need this Christmas. To add something special, Cumnor children will be coming together during their Christmas Activity Day to fundraise for the children in these families who may not otherwise receive a present this year. If you would like to make a donation alongside the hampers, please email the school office.


From Sunday 22nd to Wednesday 25th November our renowned Christmas Fayre was held online. We are delighted to have been able to extend the Fayre so you can still show your support and shop in December. Showcasing retailers from across Sussex and the South East, this is a great opportunity to support our local businesses and 10% of all sales will be donated to Home-Start CHAMS.
