£1m raised since launch of AP100 Campaign

07 November 2014

There has been an overwhelming response to the AP100 Campaign and since its launch in June 2014 an additional £1m has been raised.

The aim of the Campaign is to raise £10m to fund 100 Assisted Places by 2017 and thanks to the generosity of Old Edwardians and other supporters, the total figure raised is currently £7.25m.

Many of the donations came from this year's telephone campaign, which raised £265,000. Almost 60% of those contacted agreed to make a donation, making it one of the most successful telephone fundraising campaigns ever run by a UK school.

Stuart Southall (1976), one of 12 ambassadors for the Campaign and sponsor of a pupil on an Assisted Place, said: "I am delighted by how much has been raised since we launched the AP100 Campaign and I would like to thank all those who have donated so far. I am supporting the Campaign because I think it is vital we ensure that every local, talented boy can attend King Edward's."

In September 2014, a further 12 boys who are being funded by the Campaign started at King Edward's. We are extremely grateful to the 1,100 donors, including 1,000 Old Edwardians, who have supported the Campaign so far and are helping to transform the lives of these and many more boys in the school.
