Old Boys' Golf Boosts the Bursary Fund
Thursday, 22 September 2011
Old Boltonians and their friends have, once again, made a significant contribution to the School's Bursary Fund through their annual Golf Day.
This year's winning team comprised three Boys' Division students, who overcame seventeen other teams made up of Old Boys and friends and, for the first time, a team made up of Girls' Division pupils. Money was raised by each team paying an entry fee and further funds were raised on the day through a raffle, with large thanks being due to sponsors, advertisers and donors of prizes. A grand total of over £2,500 was raised through the event. Since the Golf Day first began in 2006, well over £20,000 has been raised for the School Bursary Fund.
Last year, over £2m was spent on bursaries at the School and over 300 Senior School pupils currently receive fee assistance; of these, over 100 pupils study for free.
