Charities We Support

At Bowker Vale, we have supported many different charities over the years. It is always difficult for a school to choose from the many worthy causes and not to appear biased in any way.

As a Rights Respecting school, we do look at lots of 'World Education' to see what is going on for different communities, and our Bowker Leaders try to find the right balance between local charities (our own school and Manchester), national charities (the UK) and international charities (the world).

Some examples of these charities are below....
