Hampton pupils have selected four new charities to support during this academic year: Off The Record (OTR), Momentum, Make a Wish Foundation, and Mary’s Meals.
Hamptonians will take part in a range of fundraising activities throughout the year, which are either year group events organised by the boys or whole School events organised by the Charity Coordinator. These include: mufti days, the summer fun run, the much anticipated book character day, and the fiercely competitive annual netball match against LEH.
Mrs Augusta Samuel, Form Charity Coordinator, highlighted how Hamptonians get involved during the School year:
We are looking forward to another great year for Form Charity, with as many students as possible taking part as to raise money for our four charity partners. There are events to suit everyone, from mufti days to quizzes and sporting events. See you there!
