The Armed Forces Fund

 

Armed Forces

Working in conjunction with Radley College and Downe House School, we are fundraising to support the education of children of armed forces personnel of any rank who have been killed or wounded in current conflict.

The children who benefit from The Armed Forces Fund will attend either Radley College, Downe House or St Mary’s Calne, and The Armed Forces Fund is one of our main school charities.

Currently 14 families with 32 children have approached the Fund; 4 fathers died in service and 9 fathers and 1 mother were seriously wounded. Five carefully means-tested bursary awards have been made to date. However, there are further applications waiting for finance and whilst every effort is being made within the Foundations of the three schools to raise funds in support, we estimate £5 million will be required to meet the requests for help that we continue to receive.  To date, the three schools have raised just under £2m.
