Charities

The aim of charity at Wetherby Senior is not only to raise money for good causes, but to educate pupils and enable them to become more knowledgeable about the issues facing the world today.

Thanks to the enormous generosity of our boys and parents, over the last two years we have raised more than £75,000 for our school charities: West London Mission, Walkabout Foundation and the Marcos, Will and Maria Bursary.

The boys have decided through their school council to support the following charities for the next two years:

Crisis (www.crisis.org.uk)

Crisis are the national charity for homeless people, helping people directly out of homelessness and campaigning for the changes needed to solve it altogether. They work side by side with people to help them rebuild their lives. From decades of experience of working with thousands of homeless people, they know what’s needed to leave homelessness behind for good and use this experience to shape the services they provide and the changes they campaign for.

 

Save the Children (www.savethechildren.org.uk)

Save the Children was founded on the belief that every child should have the chance to be who they are and become who they want to be. As a global movement working in more than 100 countries, they have four strategic goals for children:

  • A healthy start in life
  • A a safe return to school and quality learning
  • A childhood free of violence, and
  • S support to cope with future shocks

In the UK, they focus on children’s learning and support for families. Across their four goals, they will tackle the triple threat of Covid, conflict and the climate crisis – to help make a better future possible and they’ll continue to prioritise the rights of children left behind by poverty and discrimination

 

The Marcos, Will & Maria Bursary

Marcos Burnett was a Wetherby Senior student and Will and Maria Henniker-Gotley were Wetherby Senior parents. They tragically lost their lives in the Italian earthquake in 2016, but will always be remembered by our school community. The buarsary enables the school to provide financial support to some students.

Charity events at Wetherby are led by the boys and are a lot of fun!
