Form Charity Partners
Hampton boys have selected three new charities to support during this academic year: SPEAR, Anthony Nolan, and StreetInvest.
Throughout the year, Hamptonians will engage in a range of charitable events: alongside Mufti Days, our senior rugby and football players will pitch their skills against the LEH netball and lacrosse teams, the Lower School will vie for top prize in the Christmas Quiz and Upper Sixth Formers will swap business dress for all manner of outfits in their annual fancy dress competition.
Mr Tom Rigby, Form Charity Coordinator, encouraged the boys to come up with lots of new fundraising ideas explaining that they can make a real difference with the money that they raise:
We’re delighted to be supporting three such worthy causes this School year and grateful that each Form Charity partner took the time to explain to our boys in Assembly about the work they do for the community.
