Ridgemount is a boarding house containing 63 boys at Shrewsbury School. For the past few years we have been sponsoring a student to attend the Andrew Grene School in Haiti. Andrew was the best friend of Tim Perutz who had a son in Ridgemount 2011-2016. Unfortunately Andrew lost his life in the Earthquake of January 2010 whilst working for the UN. The Andrew Grene school is flourishing and providing an outstanding education for many youngsters orphaned in the Earthquake. They have recently completed an outdoor sports court for the children. Our aim is to provide funds to buy sports equipment for the children to enjoy.
We will divide the money raised equally with The Shewsy, a Youth & Community Centre in Liverpool, which is a charity started by teachers from The Schools in 1903 and is very close to all of our hearts.
