FCH Blue Fund

The FCH Blue Fund includes those who support Christ’s Hospital via the FCH (Friends of Christ’s Hospital), a registered charity in the United States which expends its funds to support educational programs of the Christ’s Hospital Foundation.  Funds raised by the FCH are not included in the overall Blue Fund total.  The FCH have their own separate target to achieve £217,000 (c. $279,000) to fund another pupil at Christ’s Hospital.

In July 2020, the FCH completed their first Blue Fund target. Daisy is the first pupil at CH who benefits from the support of the FCH Blue Fund. Fundraising continues for the second FCH Blue Fund pupil. The FCH have currently raised £194,000 (c. $251,293) towards their second target.

Daisy’s latest update

“I really like my Boarding House because most people are really nice and supportive. We’ve had a few House outings which have been really fun because I can hang out with my friends and we have some freedom. We went on a trip to France which was amazing and the staff made it really enjoyable.
My favourite hobby is art because I’ve always loved to draw and with the new equipment we have I can extend my love and passion for it. I also really like reading, because I can lose myself in a book. Since starting at CH, I’ve most improved at Hockey – I’d never heard of it before coming here and now I’m in the B Team. I’m looking forward to helping with the Residential Assessments for the new starters.”

FCH Blue Fund Champions

“One of the great things about the FCH Blue Fund is that, through it, Old Blues In the USA can collectively enable selected children to attend Christ’s Hospital, with every contributor knowing, no matter their amount, that they have had a direct impact on making that life-changing experience possible for those children.”
George Matcham (PeB 63-70)

“I am particularly excited about the US Blue Fund as it gives all Old Blues the opportunity to directly participate in the education of one child.  Many of us do not have the means to become a Governor but the Blue Fund enables us to have a ‘time share’ in becoming one.”
Belinda Reiser (4s, ColA 79-86)
