Dear Old Latin,
These are unprecedented and challenging times for us all, and perhaps a time to reflect on what’s most important to us. My own reflections have led me to realise that at this time, our old school needs our support more than ever, and that if we each do a little, we can come together as Old Latins more powerfully than ever before to help the school build a strong foundation for the future.
By supporting the school with a monthly gift, you can help to inspire future generations of Latins to grow and express themselves through the arts. I appeal to you to sign up to the ‘Latin Inspires’ gift scheme, and in so doing, join a passionate community of Old Latins from around the world and across the generations, all helping to build a brighter future for Royal Latin pupils.
Your gift will go towards the final phase of the 600 Campaign, which will see us create a fantastic theatre, music and arts facility at the heart of the school and will give students the space and tools to gain the confidence, resilience and expressive skills they need in order to thrive. We’re starting to collect donations now, as we wanted to give people a way to donate to the very early stages of the project – and we know we need to have raised a good proportion of the funding we’ll need by the time we publicly unveil the Arts Centre plans in 2024.
This project will have a significant and lasting impact on every student passing through the Royal Latin. Your gift will help us to enable young people to express themselves and acquire knowledge and skills which will not only enrich their time at school, but will also remain with them for life. I think that’s an incredibly powerful gift. You can donate any monthly amount, small or large! As a registered charity, the school can also claim Gift Aid on your donations; anything you can spare will be very gratefully received by the school.
Thank you, for taking the time to consider joining our efforts to build a bright future at The Royal Latin. Stay well, and I look forward to being able to welcome you back to an alumni event at the school soon.
With very best wishes to you and your loved ones,
Denise Griffiths – Class of 1980
To confirm your gift to Latin Inspires, please use our online donations checkout at the top right of this page. This is powered for us by Enthuse and feeds into the Royal Latin School Fund account. Gift Aid is also claimed automatically from HMRC through this process which is quicker and easier for us. If you would prefer, you can instead download, print and return the paper form.
We have an established reputation as a school which nurtures the artistic talents of students, despite cramped, outdated facilities. It is time to do our emerging young artists and artistes justice, and create a multi-use arts, theatre and music facility right at the heart of the school site. The Arts Centre will give all students more opportunities to grow in confidence by embracing creativity, and sharing their work with the school community and beyond.
