15th May 2014

Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School were visited this week by Louise Ferns, the Schools Presenter for Kent for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Louise spoke to the Lower School students about the work of the hospital and the importance of raising funds to maintain the various hospital functions. Having recently completed a series of charity events for GOSH,
CCGS were delighted to present to GOSH a cheque for £3065.17.

Teachers Clark Goodwin, Tom Richford and Neil Wakefield completed an 83 mile sponsored ride from Great Ormond Street Hospital to Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School on Friday 2nd May. Aside from this, the school held a non-uniform day, a cake sale and many students completed a sponsored static cycle challenge.

Other students devised their own sponsored events, including Harry Jones and Joshua Bentley who raised over £100 by working together over consecutive weekends to run, cycle and swim the equivalent 83 mile distance of the charity cycle ride.
Apart from the generosity of the students, staff, parents, family and friends; the school would like to thank all the contributions made by local businesses including SP Cycles, Heron’s Swimming Pool Herne Bay, Ambition Sport, Trew’s and Thanet Commercials.
