Charities

The aim of charity at Wetherby 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 boys and parents we raise an incredible amount for charity each year yet we are very keen to promote the ethos that ‘every penny counts’ and encourage boys to give what they can.

We are fully committed to supporting a range of charities and this year we are delighted to support, amongst others:

United World Schools (www.unitedworldschools.org)

United World Schools is dedicated to improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest children through education. It works with local communities and supporters to provide education in some of the poorest and most remote communities by building schools, training teachers and resourcing existing schools.

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 want to 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 who was tragically killed in the Italian earthquake in 2016. Marcos was a keen wildlife photographer and every year the Art and Biology departments organise a wildlife photography competition with all the photographs being displayed in a calendar.

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