We believe that it is fundamentally important to the development of our pupils as individuals and our effectiveness as a School that we continue to strive to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Form Charity supports four charity partners each year, all chosen democratically by our pupils.
Over £15,000 is raised each year by boys and staff through a wide range of activities which are either year group events organised by the boys or whole School events organised by the Charity Co-ordinators. We run fundraising events throughout the year including a summer fun run, dodgeball tournaments and mufti days. We also occasionally run emergency collections outside the normal Form Charity calendar – such as our crisis appeal for toothbrushes and toothpaste to send to refugees arriving in Eastern Europe in September 2015.
Charity Partners 2019-20
Off the Record
Off The Record Twickenham (OTR) is a registered charity providing the only drop-in counselling, information and sexual health service for young people aged 11–24 who live, work or study in the Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. They provide help early when it is most needed and help improve the emotional and mental well-being of over 1,500 young people a year at a time when they are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety.
Momentum work in South West London, Surrey and Sussex and support families whose children have cancer or a life-challenging condition. They offer individually-tailored support through a family support programme, offering practical and emotional help, as well as a range of therapy services including music, dance and art.
Make A Wish Foundation
The Make a Wish Foundation creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; the wishes are varied, personal and life-changing.
The vision of Mary’s Meals is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.
