Lancing's Second Giving Week

Welcome to Lancing's 2021 Giving Week. This is an annual opportunity for us to focus everyone’s mind on our aim to transform the lives of school children from challenging backgrounds through our campaign Lancing Foundationers – Bursaries that change lives, and to create a sense of real awareness within our community for those far less fortunate than ourselves. The last 18 months have shown us that now, more than ever, is the time to act and make a significant contribution to such an important agenda.

This month we are celebrating the fourth anniversary of the campaign. It is impressive what has been achieved in this time and the impact made on the education, lives, and future outcomes of these young people.

Last year we raised over £40,000 and had 194 donors. This year, we’ve raised the stakes and the target is 600 donors and £50,000!

We have raised all the funding for 25 pupils in our first phase target and are now planning in phase two to fund another 40 places for Foundationers from September 2022 – 2027.
