Fundraising as part of team: Royal Parks Half Marathon 2021

My Story

On Sunday 10th October 2021, I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon.... something I have never done before! I am raising money for the Thomas's Foundation. 

Thomas’s Foundation is driven by the belief and vision that every child deserves an enriching education.
Thomas's Foundation provides educational opportunities for children in the local communities of Thomas’s London Day Schools located in Battersea, Clapham, Fulham and Kensington and, overseas, in the remote hill villages of rural Nepal.


Thomas's Foundation delivers its vision through three core projects:

● Foundation Bursaries


● Community Partnerships

● CAIRN


Foundation Bursaries & Community Partnerships:
Thomas’s Foundation addresses the reality that many primary school children in our local community have limited access to broader opportunities such as art, music, drama, sport, outdoor learning, STEM, literacy, and language. Programmes have been developed to give pupils access to inspiring and stimulating educational opportunities, which build self-esteem and encourage a love of learning.
Examples of local community activities and funding needs
£2,200 - 1 year of Swimming lessons for a class £1,800 - 1 year of Drama lessons for a class £1200 - 1 year of Art lessons for 1 class
£1000 - After school football coaching
£875 - A music scholarship for 1 year
£100 - An instrument for a music scholar
£100 - Year of singing lessons for one child /weekly computer club for one child
£75 - Day of Pathway programme for one child
£50 - Year of swimming lessons for one child/term of pottery lessons/term of trumpet lessons £25 - Farm visit for one child
£10 - A set of reading books for the Readers' Cup


CAIRN
CAIRN, established in 2007 is dedicated to ensuring children in Nepal have the opportunity to access an enriching education. CAIRN strives to improve education for the most disadvantaged children through sending the poorest pupils to school with all the equipment they need; providing access to books through CAIRN Libraries and improving the quality of teaching through its teacher training programme.
Examples of CAIRN activities and funding needs
Help fund a CAIRN Library
£8000 - Installs a library with 3000 books and library management training and evaluation and monitoring over 5 years.
£20 - 10 maps or charts for the library walls
£50 - 50 books for the pupils
£150 - 2 bookshelves for the library
Help fund a Book Corner
£3000 - CAIRN Corner Bookshelves to install in Early Years - Grade 3
Grade 3 classrooms, with books supplied over three years, in line with the main library project.
Help fund Teacher Training

Thomas’s Foundation, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation Registration No 1181145, was established in December 2018 and is the philanthropic arm of Thomas’s London Day Schools.
