The Charities Committee is a group of about a dozen Sixth Form boys led by the don in charge. The boys carry out numerous fundraising initiatives, including fun runs, 24 sponsored events, calendar and cookbook sales, as well as collections after plays and concerts. The money raised supports three nominated charities: one local, one national and one international. Each charity is supported for a period of three years and we are due to change our international charity in September 2021. All charities support the education and development of young people. The current charities are:

  • Winchester Young Carers – a local charity supporting young people who act as carers for members of their families.
  • NSPCC - the UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover.
  • Naomi House and Jack's Place – providing hospice care for children and young people across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire and the Isle of Wight.

We also support the Lotus Flower Trust on an ongoing basis. The charity helps to build schools, homes and centres in remote, rural and environmentally challenging areas of India. More information on the partnership can be found here.
