300 Pennies Challenge

Pupils are fundraising for the Richard Churcher Foundation...
20 Sep 2021
300th

In this special anniversary year for Churcher's, the Senior School are encouraging pupils to recognise and appreciate the contribution that past generations have made to make the school what it is today, at the same time reinforcing the collective responsibility and the opportunity to contribute to our community.

Last week during an Assembly, the ‘300 pennies challenge’ was introduced to pupils, to inform them about the Richard Churcher Foundation, which was set up to provide financial support for families whose children might otherwise be unable to benefit from a Churcher’s education, and they have set them a small fundraising challenge…

Every pupil has been given 300 pennies, or three pound coins, to see what they might turn that into by Founder’s Day on 1 April so, in additon to showing gratitude to Richard Churcher for his philanthropy, everyone has the chance to give back to the Richard Churcher Foundation.

We will be writing to you in the coming weeks with further information about the 300th anniversary and how you can get involved. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the ‘300 pennies challenge’ or the tercentenary celebrations, including any ideas you might have, please do not hesitate to contact Nick Smith at nsmith@churcherscollege.com or on 01730 236 846.
