FRGS: Classroom fund hits £8,000

FRIENDS of RGS have raised more than £8,000 towards our £15,000 classroom refurbishment project target.

FRGS chair Tracy Butterfield thanked the Old Rips alumni society for their generous £1,000 donation towards the fund, as well as those individuals who have donated substantial amounts. 

"The FRGS would like to thank the Old Riponians for raising £1,000 towards the Classroom Refurbishment Project. Their generosity is a huge contribution towards our £15,000 target and has pushed us over the £8,000 mark. We would also like to thank those private individuals who have given some sizeable and extremely generous donations towards the project," she said.

Please email Tracy at if you wish to donate, or come along and support our Comedy & Curry Night fundraiser - with compere and two stand-up comedians, a two-course curry buffet and a licensed bar - which promises to be a great night out.
