Make a Suggestion

If you have a suggestion about what you would like to see the 1853 Society fund for the School, let us know.  The Committee considers bids from the School each term and we are happy to hear parents' thoughts and ideas too.


Support for Charities

We use some of the proceeds raised at our events to support elected Charities that are close to the heart of the Royal Russell community.  

We have supported the Royal Marsden Hospital, the Fashion & Textile Children's Trust, Teens Unite, (a charity which helps children with cancer) and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

In the past we have also donated to the Two Bridges Primary School in Kampala, Uganda. Royal Russell has supported this school for many years as students raise funds themselves and travel to Uganda to help with a variety of essential and basic projects to provide and build for this very remote and poor region.
