1986 Leavers' Fund Leads the Way

A partnership of Old Blues who left CH in 1986 have been particularly successful in achieving 98% of the target to educate a child for seven years through a collective group of commitments (pledges) to keep giving regularly over a child's lifetime at CH. Following this success, the first pupil to be funded by 1986 leavers, Emma, started school in September 2016. Fundraising efforts continue for the 1986 leavers to achieve the remainder of their target to fund Emma's education for the full seven years at CH.
