“IT is wonderful to see the passion of many King’s Ely pupils to engage in global issues. Raising money for charity and highlighting causes of injustice and inequality have continued to thrive in our King’s Ely virtual world.

“From the impressive efforts of individuals to the collaborative work of groups of students, money has been raised and issues highlighted. This includes the work of Withburga pupils raising money for Beat (the UK’s eating disorder charity), the final week of the student-led LGBTQ+ History Month, and the King’s Barbers’ fundraising for the Bethesda Life Centre Orphanage.

“In the last few months, pupils and parents have also supported Ely Foodbank, the Royal British Legion, Jimmy’s (supporting the homeless in Cambridge), Tearfund (global charity tackling poverty), the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, Papyrus (suicide prevention), Cruse Bereavement Care, National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society, Cancer Research and the Arthur Rank Hospice. As well as this, every House sponsors a child through World Vision or Hope4Malawi.

“Involvement in such issues remains vital in helping our students to look outwards rather than inwards. Thank you for all your support and donations.

“All the very best.”
