Earlier tonight, The Junior classes at Tower House School held their end of year ‘Moving on up’ celebrations for Year 3 (the last year of Junior School) at Christ Church in East Sheen.

The boys all gave very entertaining presentations and the Year 3 pupils were each awarded dictionaries, in preparation for their move to the Senior School later this year.

Last September, Team Margot Foundation was selected as the Junior School Charity for the year, so for the last three terms, the boys have engaged in a raft of charitable activities ranging from cross country runs, to sweet sales in the playground in order to fundraise for the Charity.

The combined sum total of their efforts, a fantastic £2,950.00, was tonight presented to Team Margot at the end of the formalities. That amounts to a lot of 10p pieces !

Unfortunately, it had already been explained to me that this was purely a cheque presentation and there wasn’t time for me to address the Junior school community. However, had I been given the opportunity, I would have told all those gathered:

one of the many charitable initiatives that the Junior School boys have run this year...

And I would have congratulated all the boys on the great work they have done on behalf of Team Margot Foundation to raise such a magnificent sum of money.

Finally, I would have explained how the Charity would be granting these monies, to people and causes close to our hearts; more specifically, research related to blood disorders like leukaemia, psychological services for patients and their families and also to help support those caring for child cancer patients. For more information on the grant giving function of Team Margot Foundation & a review of our first year, please see: http://www.teammargot.com/team-margot-foundation-an-overview-of-our-first-year/

Thank you all so much again.

Team Margot
Together, saving lives
