Bridge of Hope Charity

For many years now St. John’s School have been working very closely with the Bridge of Hope Charity to make a difference to children’s lives in Uganda. We sponsor two children, Vanessa and Rodgers in Uganda and in doing so ensure that they are well cared for by their house mother and attend full-time education. Through various different forms of fundraising, the school raises enough money to pay for this as well as donating both children a birthday and Christmas gift.


In addition to this, the school sends out donations of second hand school uniform, pencils and books. Members from St. John’s Church visit Uganda on a frequent basis and on their return a presentation of the Bridge of Hope Charity’s work is shared with the pupils. The school also receives regular correspondence on the progress that both Vanessa and Rodgers are making. We are very proud as a school of the difference that we have made to both Vanessa and Rodgers’ lives. The Bridge of Hope Charity is very special to St. John’s School.

St. John’s Protected Spring in Uganda


When Miss Bates a member of the school staff was in Rukungiri, the charity was asked by the people there if they could fund the development of a protected spring so that everyone could have access to clean water. The Bridge of Hope agreed and gave them £1,400 to complete the project as they were so touched by the hardship that this community was facing on a daily basis.


On our behalf, Miss Bates agreed that this would be our next project, so here we are with our next challenge of raising £1,400 as soon as we can.

The school is starting work on developing the protected spring in Uganda and has agreed to raise £1,400 to cover the costs of this.  If you would like to make a donation, please go to ParentPay where there is a donation account set up— Protected spring Uganda.  We will also be holding fundraising days.
