Derwen Charity supports Derwen College.

The charity provides extra experiences and opportunities for our students to truly progress and thrive.

Derwen Charity has helped shape the College according to our students’ needs. Thanks to fundraising and donations, the College has been able to grow and adapt, and become a leader among SEND colleges.

Here’s how you can support Derwen Charity.

Support an event

We hold a number of fundraising events each year at Derwen College.

Fete & Dog Show

The next event coming up is our Fete & Dog Show on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May! The event takes place at our Gobowen site, near Oswestry, and raises money for Derwen Charity.

Send a direct donation

Supporters can donate directly to Derwen. You can chose to make one-off, or regular donations.

This can all be set up via our (Enthuse) fundraising page, or if you prefer, you can send a cheque or do a bank transfer.

Fundraising events can be any size – the challenge is yours, and we appreciate your support!

We are also currently looking for anyone who is interested in volunteering at community events.
