The Griffin Schools Trust are running a threefold fundraising campaign this year:
- to raise money for Get Kids Going! charity
- to raise funds for GST’s central Sports and Arts Fund
- to raise money for charities within the local communities of our schools.
Our key fundraising periods this year are:
- Founders Day
- Virgin Money London Marathon
- Challenge 26
This online donation form is to collect donations/sponsorship for Ray Ramsay running the Virgin Money London Marathon for Get Kids Going! Any support in meeting our target is greatly appreciated.
Get Kids Going! is a national charity which gives disabled children and young people - up to the age of 26 yrs - the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport.

April/May - Challenge 26
Inspired by the 26.2 miles of the marathon, schools will be taking part in Challenge 26. Students will set themselves a sporting challenge involving the number 26. Examples of previous challenges include rowing 26 miles, doing 26 star jumps each day for 26 days, running a 26 mile relay, etc. The challenges can be completed by individuals or in groups. All sponsorship money raised will be added to the central Sports and Arts Fund.
