Over a period of three weeks at the end of August, the Foundation ran its first telephone campaign for over five years. During this time our enthusiastic callers, comprising recent School leavers and current Sixth Form members, were able not only to share stories of Habs, old and new with all members of the School community, but also ensure that all those contacted were receiving regular news and invitation to the many Foundation reunions and School events being organised.
In addition, Old Boys and parents kindly offered work experience to our current pupils, come in as a guest speaker, volunteer, and assist the School in many other ways.
During these conversations, those being called pledged an astounding £155,000 to help provide bursaries and facilities that will allow the current and future generations of boys at Habs to really benefit from their time here. This is a wonderful indication of the support of the Habs community for the School and we are grateful to all who have contributed in this fashion.
