As well as our four House charities, which are the Mind Map, Willen Hospice, the Tibbs Dementia Foundation and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, we also like to support a fifth charity, or range of charities, chosen by the Headmaster, which we hope would benefit from smaller donations. Over the last few weeks, we are very grateful to a number of parents and boys for raising the plight of Harry Banks. We have donated £1000 from funds already raised to help Harry receive essential treatment. Normally we would wait until the end of the year to allocate, but we felt that, given the immediacy of the need, we would do so now. Harry’s story and funding page are here if you would like to donate personally.
Sir Alastair Cook is also supporting the campaign and is auctioning a nets session at Lord’s which is currently running on ebay. Bidding ends on Sunday.
