City of London School raises over £82,000 for Switchback

Friday, 17 September 2021

We are so pleased to announce that we have raised over £82,000 for Switchback! 

In 2019, Switchback was voted by the pupils to be the charity that we would focus our fundraising efforts on for the year. Although some of the usual larger fundraising events we usually hold sadly couldn't happen last year, our pupils and staff were not deterred and instead came up with some brilliantly creative ways to fundraise.

These included our very own 'CLS Bake Off', a 24-hour sponsored row, a 13 mile sponsored walk, climbing the equivalent of Snowdon, virtual talks, amongst many other great initiatives.  

We are very proud of everyone who has worked so hard to achieve this outstanding total and are extremely grateful to our pupils, parents and staff for making this possible.

We were honoured to attend the City of London School charity assembly this week, where we were presented with a giant cheque revealing just how much the school raised in total for Switchback – and we were absolutely blown away!
