By Richard Browning, Chaplain

Radford supports a wide range of local, national and international organisations. They are important to us. They do real and valuable work. We stand in solidarity with them and their work. The organisations reflect our values and the relationships we have developed. The process also allows for junior students to direct engagement in response to issues as they arise across the year through their RTC. See details of these organisations below and on the document attached.

Raising as much as we can is one way we live out our values. 

The Junior School compiled this video to show how the money raised in 2018 was used.
