Nightingale Giving Day 2021


On 16 (and 17) September Reigatians from across the globe came together for Nightingale Giving Day 2021. As a community we raised a staggering £105,139 from 363 donors!  

Our amazing global community helped unlock five challenge gifts and wrote some fabulous messages of support, including:

Ian Howick (RGS ’57): Keep up the amazing effort. I am very proud of the achievements of the school I was privileged to attend seventy years ago
Catherine Brown (parent of former student): So close to challenge #5! I hope you make it! [we did!] Steve Purser (RGS ’93): A small contribution to the huge opportunity that the Foundation offers its pupils to have a fulfilling education and realise their potential
Camila Diniz (current parent): What a great initiative and we are so happy to be part of this community. Good luck!

We were also honoured to receive a brilliant appeal video from the one and only Dame Judi Dench!

As part of wider activity in the school, RGS Foundation Ambassadors sold Krispy Kreme donuts on the day, raising over £900.

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.
