Mayor of Reigate and Banstead meets RGS Student
Proudly we write about Fifth Form student Tyra L a committed young philanthropist who continues to work tirelessly to fundraise for her brother’s school Woodfield. The school provides education for young people with Learning and Additional Needs (LAN). A significant number of pupils have language and communication difficulties, and an increasing number present a broader complexity of needs. In addition, they have a purpose-built 16-19 provision on site.
Last week Tyra had a guest spot on local station Suzy Radio talking to David Jones about her fundraising campaign and met with Reigate and Banstead Mayor Councillor Frank Kelly to discuss ways of helping raise awareness and funding for Woodfield School.
Currently the RGS community has several outreach partnerships with local charitable organisations such as Stripey Stork, Loveworks and The Orpheus Centre. We will continue to support Tyra and her fundraising efforts alongside exploring ways we can further collaborate with Woodfield School.
To learn more about RGS community and outreach activities turn to pages 58 – 60 of the new edition of The Pilgrim Review additionally visit Tyra’s Just Giving page for further details of her fundraising targets.
