Lewisham Hospital

St Matthew Academy has worked alongside Lewisham Hospital for over three years, as part of our efforts to support local causes and raise money for the Lewisham Hospital Children’s Ward.

Every term, pupils participate in whole academy and House fundraiser activities and visit the hospital to see the outcomes of their hard work and charitable efforts. This year, pupils and our local community supported the Lewisham Hospital cause with:

  • Three Peaks Sponsored Challenge: pupils, staff and parents embarked on a trail across three parks in Lewisham 
  • Primary Summer Fayre: our local community came together to enjoy a BBQ, bouncy castle and fun and games as we raised money and awareness for the cause

We were thrilled to learn that monies raised by St Matthew Academy contributed to the refurbishment of the Children’s Ward Family Room, brightening the space and providing toiletries and refreshments to allow parents stay overnight with their child.

We look forward to continuing our partnership together and supporting Lewisham Hospital in the near future.
