Giving the Gift of an LEH Education

In a year like no other, when the economic effects of the pandemic are just beginning to bite, we are calling on our alumnae to show their support for our first ever Giving Day.

We will be bringing our whole community together, physically and virtually, to celebrate everything that is wonderful about LEH on Friday 25 June. In doing so we hope to raise much-needed funds to support our goal of widening access to the school by creating a new Sixth Form bursary.

Jenny Blaiklock, LEH Director of Development, says: “If there have been any positives to come out of this pandemic, it is the renewed sense of powerful community that we have all felt during lockdown. An understanding that we are stronger together, enjoy supporting each other and can achieve more than we ever realised by all pulling as one. There will be many ways to get involved, including a host of exciting 1710 challenges and other special events, so please look out for more information over the coming weeks.”

Today we are looking for Alumnae Ambassadors to help us promote and publicise the Giving Day on social media and to other members of our community. We will provide all of the imagery and posts that you will need to post on your own accounts. For further information, or to sign up as an Ambassador, please email ‘development@lehs.org.uk’.

Finally, to help raise the profile of our Giving Day, we’re asking you to sign up to our new campaign entitled “I am #LEHPROUD because...”. All you need to do is send a single sentence to us at ‘development@lehs.org.uk’, explaining why you are proud to have attended LEH, or you could even record a short video clip and post it on your own social media using the hashtag.

Keep watching this space for more information about our exciting Giving Day plans.
