RPPS's Sporting Challenges for OTW

RPPS's Sporting Challenges for OTW

Why we need your help

At RPPS we aim to instil a sense of social responsiblity in our pupils. Children and parents have the opportunity to vote for a charitable cause for the school to adopt and support for a two year period. 

In March 2017 the pupils chose Over The Wall as the charity they wanted to support..

Who are Over the Wall?

A small national charity, Over The Wall provides camps for children aged 8 to 18 who are living with serious illness, as well as camps to support their siblings and families.

Living with a serious illness can be devastating for a child. Frequent hospital visits and a lack of energy mean that they miss out on some of the most important parts of childhood – school, holidays, birthday parties and days out. A lack of understanding from their peer group can leave them isolated and alone, with low confidence and little aspiration for their future.

But Over The Wall changes this.

“It took two staff and myself to carry all my child’s meds to Camp, but while he’s there, he’s going to be like any other boy.” - Parent of a child with a limiting life condition.

Last year OTW supported over 660 children and families, with 130 different health challenges through 12 Camps across the UK.

Camp is a haven for these children, away from their day to day stressful lives. For once, they get to be normal – no one looks twice at a wheelchair or feeding tube on camp, it’s all perfectly normal; taking medication and having injections everyday - that’s camp routine.

Over six days children can kick back and enjoy new, fun activities and make life-long friends, whilst parents know they’re in safe hands.

“Camp is quite simply magic. It is a magical place, and the magic doesn't just stay at camp- it comes home with you. It makes you feel like you can achieve anything, and you realise that being happy is the most important thing in life. It makes you feel well.” - Camper with cancer, aged 13.

What will OTW do with funds raised by RPPS

OTW has a long waiting list of children who would love to go to camp - but sometimes there aren’t enough places. With RPPS’s support children can come off the waiting list and experience the Over The Wall camps. 

Every penny RPPS raises will go directly towards making sure more children go to camp.

In their words...

‘’It is impossible to put and Over The Wall Camp into words. From the staff and volunteers, to the campers: every single person at Over the Wall is just incredible” - Camper, aged 9 and living with cancer

“It was after we returned home when the true experience of Over the Wall became apparent. There was a different attitude - a can try and will try attitude. His eyes lit up when he remembered his week and all he had accomplished.” - Camper Parent whose child has a life-limiting condition.
