request for support for every child in danger…

Monday September 30, 2019

A message from Principal, Mr Neil Hawkins: I am writing to ask for your support.  This year, I will – once again – be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in London on Sunday 13th October in support of UNICEF. UNICEF is a wonderful charity that aims to give support to ‘Every Child in Danger’.  Its work ranges from helping those suffering from domestic abuse and neglect to those facing famine, disease and war.  Children are our future and they are also the most vulnerable and impressionable members of society.  UNICEF’s work changes lives. Here at Concord, we lead privileged lives in a beautiful setting with fantastic facilities, secure support and the privilege of three meals a day!  This is something that many children can only dream of. It is for this reason that I keep trying to run this event each year.  So that we – as the global Concord community – can come together and try to make a small difference to those who have nothing, no one and no hope. Over the last six years the Concord community has raised over £200K in support of UNICEF.  I hope that we can add to this in 2019.  Please consider making a donation.  However large or small it is of great value and greatly appreciated. Below is a short video that may be helpful (or at least make you smile...) I am very grateful to you for reading this and if you feel you would like to contribute you can do so securely by clicking on the following link www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Neil-Hawkins10. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my PA, Mrs Hartshorne at Wendy.Hartshorne@concordcollege.org.uk.
