Our last Mufti Day this academic year is on Friday 24 June and will raise funds for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, CRY and Diabetes UK; all charities close to the heart of the school community. As usual boys are invited to wear casual clothes for the day in exchange for a suggested donation of £2. Cakes will also be on sale in the South Porch at morning break. Cake donations are, as always, warmly welcomed – please hand in at the Bell Room.

London Bridges Walk in aid of CRY
On Sunday 26 June, Gina Worboys from the Old Bedfordians Club is participating in the London Bridges Walk raising money for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) in memory of her son Robert Worboys (OB 98-07) who died suddenly and tragically of an undiagnosed cardiac problem aged just 27.

Since its formation in 1995, CRY has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research.
