The funds were raised throughout the year with a number of charity events for parents and pupils, including quiz nights, fairs and the Friends’ successful Spring Ball.

Samantha Williams, Chair of the Friends of Bede’s Prep, says, “We would like to pass on our thanks to Sally and Abi from Ronald McDonald House Charities, who have supported us throughout the year. This huge amount of money simply couldn't have been raised without the committed and enthusiastic Friends of Bede's Prep and support from the school community, and so a huge thank you to everyone involved.”

Giles Entwisle, Headmaster at Bede’s Prep, adds, “The Friends are a very dedicated group of individuals, who do so much vital work for the School and local charities. They are there for everybody; whether you are a parent in our Nursery, Pre-School, Pre-Prep or Prep School, the Friends encourage all of us to become as involved as we feel able. They are a friendly and welcoming group, and we are incredibly lucky to have them.”
