We were delighted to be offered the opportunity of running a match-funding challenge in support of our Bursary Fund this term. An existing supporting Surrey family initially offered to match pound-for-pound all donations to the School up to £80,000 in honour of Zamira Menuhin Benthall’s 80th birthday. Thanks to an amazing response from so many of our supporters, we met our target a full four weeks ahead of schedule! In response, our backer challenged us to raise our game even higher and offered to match-fund up to £130,000 for all donations made by Friday 20 December.
In the end, we raised over £154,000, all of which will now be matched pound for pound thanks to two anonymous donors! We are so grateful for your support, which will help us to provide bursaries for talented children to attend the School next year. Currently 9 out of 10 pupils require some form of financial aid in order to study with us, so this campaign has made a huge difference. Thank you.
