The School’s annual sporting charity event, Long Ducker, took place this weekend raising funds for the Young Harrow Foundation (YHF).
The races came as news of an even stronger partnership between the School and the charity is announced.
Permission has been granted to convert a School-owned building on the Hill into subsidised offices for the charity which helps the local voluntary sector to support young people in Harrow.
Dan Burke, CEO of the Young Harrow Foundation, said he was delighted with the news. “We have been working closely with the School over the past few years, forming a really meaningful partnership. The fundraising and venue support has been phenomenal and in turn has enabled the School, and the boys, to find out more about the range of charities working locally, to engage and support them.”
The weekend’s Long Ducker saw all boys and some staff run and/or swim different length courses over the School grounds, generously sponsored by family and friends. This year’s event will, of course, be different from usual to ensure safety during the pandemic.
