Felsted Telethon 2023
The Felsted Telethon 2023 runs from 11 - 25 April, with some of our recent leavers, who are currently at university, ringing both OFs and parents.
Our aim here is to build community, and learn more about our OFs and current parents and how they would like to engage with the school. For our young OF telethon callers, it's a great opportunity to speak to different generations of the Felsted community - to share experiences of the school - and to tap into some advice for the future!
Support the Bursary Fund
We’ll also, as part of the telethon, be raising funds to provide more opportunities for young people to come to Felsted, through our Bursary Fund. Although we already support students who couldn’t otherwise access all the school has to offer, the need far outstrips what we can do on our own. That need is growing. We know bursaries offer young people (often in challenging circumstances) opportunities, experiences and relationships that are literally life changing.
Areas of Greatest Need
As well as bursaries, there will also be the opportunity to support areas of greatest need. This gives us the flexibility to respond quickly - and make a difference for our community straight away.
Strength in Numbers
We hope we will be able to speak to hundreds of people. There really is strength in numbers. Lots of people, giving just a modest sum, can make a huge difference. Every penny brings more bursary support within reach - and will make a real difference to the experience of our young people.
