Bright Futures Campaign Raises £1.6 million!

Thursday 30 September 2021

 

Thanks to gifts from 1,082 Old Blues, parents, and friends our Bright Futures campaign has now surpassed its £1.5m fundraising target!

We have received donations from supporters in 21 countries across the globe, showcasing what a global community we have at Christ’s Hospital. Every single donation is very much appreciated, and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed.

When we launched the campaign in September 2019, our aim was to ensure a CH education for more bright students, regardless of their background or circumstances. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, CH has been able to offer 18 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.

The £1.6 million raised in donations and pledges for the Bright Futures campaign will fund the first three years of these 18 bursary places. Fundraising will of course continue to raise the remaining funds in the long term, but this is a great milestone to reach and one that we are delighted to be celebrating.

“We are incredibly grateful to every single person who has supported us to make Bright Futures possible. When we set the target of raising £1.5 million, we knew it was ambitious, but thanks to the incredible generosity of our community we were delighted to achieve our goal! When the last year has been very difficult for so many people, we appreciate your support now more than ever. Thank you!” Hugo Middlemas, Director of Development
