In December our Pre-Prep staff ran the Santa race at Richmond Park and raised £1,750 in aid of the Princess Alice Hospice, below. Our 14s and 15s pupils also thought about how they could make it a warmer winter for others, as they bought and wrapped presents for women and children at Sutton Women’s Centre.
This year’s Christmas Fair, organised by the HSPA, successfully kick-started the festive season with style but also raised an impressive £7,000, which will be divided up and donated to The Blood Fund and The Strathmore School in Richmond. All pupils and staff donated £2 to wear their Christmas jumpers on the last day of term and generated a total of £650 for the Blood Fund. This will be presented to the charity as part of a larger sum raised at the Christmas Fair, as part of the Christmas Concert collection and the upcoming Charity Fashion Show.
