Ignis Charity Day Summary
The Ignis Charity day focused on World Sight Day and at King’s Hill, we raised money for the charity: The Royal Society for Blind Children.
On the day, all the children wore the colour red and bought in £1 for the charity. Throughout the day, we completed exciting activities to help us understand what World Sight Day is and why it is important. We read a story, played word games and we designed our own glasses frames.
As the Ignis House captain, I got to help out setting up the Ignis charity day activity in the hall. This was a blindfolded agility course. We set the hall up with cones, benches and blindfolds. The house captain and vice captains got to help the younger children complete the agility course. We timed each house team in each year group to see which house team completed the course first.
Overall, it was an amazing charity day, the house captains and I really enjoyed helping the other children in the school. Also, seeing them having a good time to raise money for a good cause was great!

Ignis House Charity 2022 – 2023
This year the houses chose to raise money for various disability charities. Each house found a charity that has close links to some of the pupils in the school.
Ignis’ house charity this year is: The Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC)
The RSBC supports blind and partially sighted children and young people, and their families. RSBC’s mission is for every blind child and their family to have the skills and confidence to live their life without limits. The RSBC offers a range of services including emotional support and practical advice for families, opportunities for children and young people.
RSBC’s objectives are:
- To help every young person they work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential.
- To support people from the point of diagnosis, guiding them and their families on their journey through sight loss.
- To provide them with a combination of support, learning and development opportunities to help them build the resilience, and help with the skills they will need to navigate their own futures.
Ignis are looking forward to raising money for our chosen charity through a range of activities and house competitions.
