In November schools across the country came together to celebrate the first UK Schools Week of Giving – a new national initiative to celebrate the philanthropy and support that underpins our institutions. This was an opportunity for us to focus everyone’s mind on our educational mission, Lancing Foundationers – Bursaries that change lives, and to create a sense of real awareness within our community for those far less fortunate than ourselves. We wanted to get everybody, young and old, teenagers to nonagenarians behind our bursary programme and we certainly did that. The statistics reveal that 184 OLs, parents, staff and pupils from 17 different countries raised over £40,000 - and the money is still coming in.
We are really grateful for all your support, whether it was volunteering your time to help or making a gift. Every contribution is appreciated and makes a difference. The impact of all these gifts today means that we can offer more places to Foundationers in September 2021.Thank you for your involvement at a time when circumstances are not easy for anyone. Despite all of this, you have come together once again, to show the kindness and generosity of the Lancing community.
