Thank you Reading School community #RSCares
Reading School is proud to announce that we have reached our initial target of £10,000 with the generous support from the Reading School community, in just less than two weeks.
We are enormously grateful for the generosity of generations of ORs, current and former parents and friends of Reading School whose support has enabled us to reach this goal. #RSCares
We know this campaign has touched the hearts of many and we are humbled at how the Reading School community is working together during these difficult times.
Every contribution will support families connected to Reading School during the Covid-19 crisis which includes children and families of key workers, vulnerable families, those struggling financially, those in self-isolation, as well as supporting families of the NHS staff based at the Royal Berkshire Hospital or indeed on our school site.
We hope our support will go some way to helping our NHS heroes devoting their time, skills and energy to care for those most in need. They have our sincere thanks and admiration.
We would also like to congratulate our medical Old Redingensians who have graduated early to join the NHS ahead of schedule to join in the fight against COVID-19. We are proud of every Old Redingensian and parents of pupils working on the frontline either in the NHS or as key workers.
We will not be closing our campaign as we realise, as the Covid-19 crisis evolves we can increase the support we can continue to provide.
Those that have lost loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers and we continue to pray for those that are battling Covid-19.
There are many celebrations taking place this weekend, Easter, Passover and Vaisakhi, but please do not be complacent, we must reiterate the message of stay home save lives to help protect our NHS, volunteers and key workers.
We have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of the generosity from both pupils, parents, alumni and the Reading School community.
Please give as little or as much as you can, all donations go some way to supporting those that most need it during this crisis and beyond.
