Bannerman House Smash Fundraising Target!

14 November 2019 | Tagged: Senior School

Bannerman House pupils recently raised over £4,600 for The Duncan Hospital in Bihar, India.

Across their Fundraising Week, Bannerman initially set out to raise exactly £4,542, the amount required to cover bursaries for six nurses at The Duncan Hospital new training centre.

Bannerman House, led by Captains Connie Baume-Kennedy and Cameron Crooks, organised an action packed programme of events including their own version of ‘The Chase’ quiz show, a doughnut and milkshake sale, musical busking performances and a basketball scoring challenge, before ending the week with a non uniform day and pupil versus teachers Bake Off Challenge.

"We are very proud of the money we have raised for such a great cause. The full school community really pulled together during our fundraising week, and everyone enjoyed the events we planned." Connie Baume-Kennedy, Bannerman House Captain.

The Duncan Hospital located in northern Bihar, India, on the border with Nepal, was founded by Scottish Surgeon Dr Cecil Duncan in 1930 and serves a population of around 11 million people without any funds from central government. Since opening, the hospital has become part of the Emanuel Hospital Association that exists to transform communities, offering care for all. In February 2020, the hospital will be opening a new nursing college providing local people education opportunities, and enhanced future healthcare for the local area.
