St Edmund’s Breaks Fundraising Record

St Edmund’s College broke all its previous fundraising records by raising £20,260 for Mary’s Meals, a charity which provides a daily meal for chronically poor children in a place of learning. Our donation will feed 1,457 children for a year.
The College’s Charity Week raises money each year for a chosen charity and, over the last five years, the school has donated a staggering £94,000 to worthy causes. Students and staff worked hard to raise funds through many varied activities held at break and lunch times from Colour Runs, staff Pie Face, cake sales and car washes. The Headmaster, Mr Paulo Durán, said, ‘I am so proud of all the students and staff, supported by our parents, who worked tirelessly to raise this amazing amount. Through their efforts so many children will now eat a meal at school every day, something which we take for granted.’
