Our Sports Campus is designed to deliver innovative and inspirational new facilities that encourage ALL our students to get involved in sport and to improve their health and wellness. We have always said that whilst we’re fundraising we should maintain that aim and get as many of students raising money in active ways too! Whether it’s been swimming, running, walking, climbing, playing team sports, karting, golfing, dancing, or netballing, we can safely say we’ve been doing that!
These pages show some of the current fundraising projects that our students have completed or are still hard at work with. Please do support them if you are able. Thank you.
The Race to 600 is our overarching student fundraising drive to raise funds for the Sports Campus, to get active, work as a team and be part of the success story!
The challenge – devised by our Sports Campus Student Board – is for every form to raise £600 over the academic year. Students can do sponsored activities or organise fundraising events – whatever their passion and skills. Prizes on offer for “finishing the race” is a Form Pizza Party, House Points, and a Sporting Hero plaque dedicated to their form on the wall of the Sports Campus, forever. If every form manages to complete the “Race”, it will equate to over £20k for the Sports Campus which would be an incredible achievement.
Parent help: As we are getting closer to our deadline and our fundraising is getting more and more urgent, we are inviting parents to help their child’s form reach their target by taking on their own fundraising challenges! Anything a parent raises through a fundraising challenge or event, can be added to the form’s total to help them on their way. A true RLS Family effort! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea.
Old Latin help: We are also inviting Old Latins to help our students hit or exceed their targets. We’d love to recruit an Alumni Ambassador for every form – either to match-fund what they raise, or to contribute to what they do. Please contact email@example.com if you’d like to become an RLS Alumni Ambassador!

Virtual London Marathon
Our students took on the Challenge to work together to run the virtual London Marathon and raise sponsorship for the Sports Campus.
Match-Funding Pledge: We have been HUGELY lucky to have local company chairman, Bernard Garbe of Vitalograph, supporting our student fundraising with a £10,000 match-funding pledge. In March this year, our students reached their first £10,000 for the Sports Campus and this has been doubled by Mr Garbe’s donation which is amazing!
Please read all about it here in the Buckinghamshire Advertiser.
With that first £10,000 under their belts, our students aren’t willing to stop yet, and are already on their way to raise a further £10,000 over the next 4 months. They are looking for another match-funder who might like to follow in Bernard’s footsteps.
