We did it! Hampton School Giving Day

We did it! Thanks to the amazing generosity of our Hampton community, our first-ever Giving Day has raised over £200,000 from over 730 donors, to support the Fitzwygram Foundation and Free Places at Hampton.

On Founders’ Day’, current and former parents, alumni and friends of Hampton, came together over the course of 1557 minutes, in support of Free Places. Over 1,780 tinned goods were donated to Feltham Food Bank as part of the Hampton School Parents’ Association (HSPA) challenge.

Current Hamptonians also took part in a penalty shootout, trying their hardest to score a goal past members of the Common Room. Pupils managed a fantastic total of 1,847 goals in just one hour, with the HSPA donating funds for every goal scored.

Many thanks also go to our Hampton rowing and running communities who were challenged to row or run 1557km, between 22-29 June. Our rowing community rowed a total of 2335km and our runners covered an incredible 1624km. Each challenged unlocked an extra £1,557.

We were delighted to welcome back to the School, Cartoonist David Lewis OH (1986), who generously gave his time (and talent!), capturing our Founders’ Day and Giving Day perfectly.

A big thank you to everyone in the Hampton community for their generosity – you’re amazing!
