Gresham’s Charity of the Year

At Gresham’s our pupils are encouraged to develop and foster a sense of moral and social responsibility, with many pupils and staff regularly fundraising for local and international charities.

Each year the school selects a charity to support and pupils get involved in all sorts of exciting fundraising events. Past activities have included sleeping outside in an igloo, cycling from Norfolk to Cornwall, dressing up, leg shaving and organising cake sales, to name a few.  Look out for our Christmas song release in December 2018; “Christmas Day with you” to help raise funds for our school charities this year.

Gresham’s is delighted to announce that the School Charities for 2018-19 are The Lord’s Taverners  and Michael Morpurgo’s Farms for City Children

The Lord’s Taverners is the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, dedicated to giving disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance. The charity’s mission is to enhance the lives of disadvantaged and disabled young people through sport and recreation and the programmes it delivers supports some of the most marginalised and at risk young people in the UK.
