Highgate is Here – Charity Review

” At Givey, we aim to raise the profile of charities and fundraisers. This means that, together with our Givey Community, we can support the good causes that matter the most!

About the Charity

Highgate School is one of the UK’s leading co-educational independent schools. It educates children from the ages 3-18 years old.

Highgate aims to provide an environment for all their pupils that is safe and nurturing to each individual, whilst offering high-calibre, academically-minded teaching with a focus on scholarship and independence for all, rather than on exam outcomes.

Support –

Even though times have been uncertain with Covid-19, this charity’s response to the situation has been second to none!

We continue to support the many avenues of fundraising they have implemented here on Givey.

We ask that you support their good cause’s in any way you can.

Please visit their fundraising page below.

Fundraising Journey –

Highgate started their fundraising journey with Givey in early May.

We have seen an outstanding amount of support from their donors, enabling them to give significant support towards their causes!

So I’m sure you would agree with us: this charity definitely deserves a shoutout!

To date, their biggest fundraising success was a fundraiser to support Digital Access in state schools. Their Head, Adam Pettitt, raised enough money to buy over 300 laptops for local children, smashing their £50k target, raising closer to £75k. Adam completed his marathon in 3 hours 28 minutes: – a very impressive time!

They also sought advice from our support team here at Givey, helping them to use our platform for their fundraising journey.

” With schools closed and pupils studying online, the social gap in access to technology is stark “

– Adam Pettitt –

Mr Pettitt wanted to run the marathon to help raise funds for pupils at their Chrysalis partner schools who need digital resources at home.  It’s a race against time for those pupils losing their education daily with no access to online learning.
