Queenswood girls raise funds for RSPCA
Wednesday 28 January 2015
Each boarding house at Queenswood nominates a charity for the year, and Stamp House has chosen to support the Potters Bar branch of the RSPCA. Two enterprising Year 7 girls decided to do some work in the local community, raising funds and awareness.

Lara S and Alina spent Saturday 24 January baking scrumptious homemade cakes and biscuits, and crafted some loom band gifts and other goodies. Then, on Sunday afternoon, they visited houses in Lara’s area, offering the homemade items they had prepared, introducing the charity and inviting people to donate. The homemade baking was very popular and a total sell out, and the girls brought smiles to so many faces with their polite and enterprising approach.
Overall they raised £93.09 for the RSPCA – a superb achievement for one afternoon’s fundraising.
Stamp House will continue to support the RSPCA with a variety of events during the coming year.
RSPCA – Potters Bar, Hatfield and Barnet Branch
The Potters Bar, Hatfield and Barnet Branch is just one of 164 independent branch charities that support RSPCA campaigns.
As a separately registered branch of the RSPCA they are responsible for raising funds locally to help animals in the area. They are run by a committee of local volunteers and raise money through fundraising events, donations and legacies.
They aim to promote responsible pet ownership through local microchipping and neutering campaigns. They also have cats and kittens for adoption and offer advice and support to the public by telephone calls to our branch line and via email.
