We are running a threefold fundraising campaign:
- to raise money for MACS charity
- to raise further 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:
9th March - Founders Day
As always on this day, the focus is on community. Schools will be running a number of charity events throughout the day, the money raised will be split between local charities of the school’s choice and MACS.
22nd April - Marathon
Graham Clifford, Head of Willow Brook, is following in the footsteps of our Founder Ange Tyler and running the Virgin London Marathon on behalf of the Trust. All money raised will go towards MACs.
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.
MACS stands for Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support and it is the UK's national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes.
