Hamptonians have raised over £4,700 for our 2019-20 Form Charity partners in the 1557 Challenge.
Based on the year that the School was founded pupils were challenged to take the number 1557 and interpret it however they wished to raise money for our four Form Charity partners: Mary’s Meals, Make a Wish Foundation UK, Momentum and Off the Record Twickenham.
Hamptonians came up with a range of ingenious ways to carry out the 1557 Challenge – from hitting a punchbag 1557 times to running a 15.57 kilometre run and even climbing the stairs 1557 times, the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest!
Form Charities co-ordinator Mrs Samuel praised Hamptonians for their fund-raising efforts:
Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the 1557 challenge. It was wonderful to see so many of you getting involved and the money you raised will make a huge difference to people in need.
The 1557 challenge will continue to run throughout the summer holidays and the Just Giving link can be found below:
