Nightingale Giving Day: 24 Sept 2020
For 36 hours – between 00.00 on Thursday 24 and 12.00 on Friday 25 September 2020 – Reigatians from across the globe came together for Nightingale Giving Day. As a community we raised a staggering £144,907 from 399 donors!
There was a noticeable buzz of excitement as members of our global community helped unlock our four challenge gifts, wrote messages of support and engaged with us through social media.
As part of wider activity in the school RGS Foundation Ambassadors, with help from student leaders on the Charity Committee, sold 552 charity wristbands on the day, raising £1,552.
While our main focus was on fundraising, this was also about engagement and participation and we were particularly pleased to have so many likes, shares, comments and video views across the RGS Foundation’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube platforms. Indeed, our social media activity achieved a reach of 45,200!
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all those who made a donation and joined in with the excitement. We cannot emphasise strongly enough the impact that your ongoing support has on deserving young people and their families. We are so proud to be part of such a positive and caring community.
The Nightingale Fund forms part of the wider Changing Lives campaign. Our work continues in order to raise funds for NHS and other key worker families and children from poorer backgrounds – please click here to support this initiative.
