The Blue Fund succeeds only as a collective effort; every gift, small or large, regular or one-off, makes a tangible difference. Even a small increase in the percent of participation, or the size of an average gift, can have a huge impact on the fund’s success.

The Blue Fund is on its way to being able to offer a sixth place for a child in need to have the opportunity of a fully funded, 7-year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital, but we need your help.

Tom, one of our Blue Fund pupils has given us an up-to-date account of his experience at Christ’s Hospital. The Blue Fund invites donors to join forces and, in partnership, fund a full seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital, for children in need:

“Being given a place at CH is such a life-changing opportunity for me. I feel very lucky and grateful to be in the position that I am in, and I’m determined to make the most of the chance that I have. In my five years here at CH I have had so many invaluable experiences that I would not have had otherwise. I’m excelling in LAMDA and taking part in a wide range of sports such as cricket, football, and rugby. I have become so much more independent through boarding and my confidence has really grown.” Tom, GE (Year 11) pupil.
