CH Campaign Raises £200k
Thank you to all our Old Blues, parents and friends who supported our CH Telephone Campaign. Our team of 13 recent leavers spoke to over 500 Old Blues and parents and really enjoyed their conversations: sharing news and hearing others’ experiences of CH and beyond.
We are delighted to announce that over 340 of those we spoke to generously supported CH with gifts, collectively raising £200,000 in donations and pledges which will help CH in the following ways:
- The Bright Future’s Campaign – To help provide 18 bursary places for disadvantaged young people to have the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential at CH.
- The Education Fund – To provide current CH pupils with access to the right resources, to enhance their educational experience and reach their full potential.
- The Additional Costs Fund – To help support families in exceptional financial need, helping fund travel costs, house funds, school trips and sports uniform.
Old Blue Valerie Nesbitt (3s 56-63) received a call this year during the telephone campaign. She said:
“I think this is the third or fourth time I have had the pleasure of being part of the Telephone Campaign – and last evening’s call with Manon was no exception! It was a real pleasure, and what a great ambassador she is for ‘a school like no other!’ Thoroughly enjoyed the chat. It is a brilliant win-win scheme, hopefully netting cash and support for various CH funds for present and future pupils. At the same time connecting very young Old Blues with fairly ancient Old Blues in a most pleasurable way”.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our telephone campaign as well as our fantastic team of callers.
