Giving Day - SUCCESS!

“My life would have been unimaginably different without the support and education that Blundell's generously gave me.” - Adrian Lewis (Former Bursary Recipient & Donor)

We did it! In true Blundell's spirt our community came together to help us welcome more bursary pupils to Blundell's than ever before! We raised an incredible £121,245 (plus gift aid to come) thanks to 307 incredible donors and 15 Giving Day Ambassadors. We are truly grateful for every single person's involvement.

Old Blundellian Golf Success

A huge congratulations to our OB Golf team who won the Cyril Gray tournament for the second time. The Cyril Gray is for the last 32 schools entering the Halford Hewitt and it is a six a side scratch foursomes knockout, participants need to be over 50 years of age. It is played at Worplesdon GC in Surrey and was first held in 1971. Blundell’s have now won it twice, the first time being 1978. This is a fantastic achievement, and we are delighted to share this success.
