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:

United World Schools (www.unitedworldschools.org)

United World Schools (UWS) is dedicated to improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest children through education. It works in some of the poorest and most remote communities to give every child access to free education by building schools, training teachers and improving hygiene.

Along with Wetherby Prep, our aim is to raise enough money to build and resource a new school that will transform the lives of around 200 children.

 

Steel Warriors (www.steelwarriors.co.uk)

Steel Warriors is a charity that aims to reduce the number of young people carrying knives in the UK. They melt down knives taken off London’s streets and recycle the steel into outdoor calisthenics gyms.

They offer young people a free space that not only gets them talking about knife crime, but also provides them with more physical and mental confidence to walk the streets unarmed.

 

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!
