The Blue Fund invites donors to join forces and, in partnership, fund a full seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital, for children in need.
The Blue Fund aims to raise £190,000 to cover the cost of the full seven year education for a needy child at Christ's Hospital.
Thank you to our 283 donors who have collectively raised our target £190,000! This will provide a full 7 year bursary at Christ’s Hospital for another child in financial or other need. This child will be the second Blue Fund Pupil to benefit from the collective support of the whole CH community and will start at CH in September 2018.
We will of course continue our fundraising to kick start a third Blue Fund which will offer a life-changing opportunity to another child in need. Our new fundraising target is set at £210,000 which, by joining forces, is achievable.
We are also enormously grateful to those who have pledged to continue giving regularly (monthly, quarterly or annually) over a child’s lifetime at Christ’s Hospital.
In October 2016, we reached our first target of £180,000 to fund our first Blue Fund pupil's seven year education and boarding at Christ's Hospital. This was possible thanks to the 339 Old Blues, parents and other friends of Christ's Hospital who joined forces and gave single gifts and regular donations of all sizes.
Our first Blue Fund pupil, Tom, started at Christ's Hospital in September 2017. Make sure to follow us on our social media pages to be kept up to date with all of his news.
In the meantime, fundraising continues for a second Blue Fund pupil.Learn more
