2019 has been a fabulous year for events organised by the Development Team.  These events included:

425 Bursary ball

The 2018-19 Academic Year was Stonyhurst’s 425th anniversary as a school and along with the creation of Stonyhurst Monopoly, wine and beer we began one of our biggest fundraising campaigns – the 425 Bursary Appeal. This bursary appeal was an ambitious initiative, conceived by OS and current parents, to create a Restricted Fund that will permanently endow a 425 Bursary for a pupil right through the College: from their first day at St Mary’s Hall until their Rhetoric Leavers’ Mass at the College.

A 425 Bursary Committee was formed to assist this endeavour by hosting a Bursary Ball which was held at Stanley House Hotel and Spa in Mellor on the 18th May 2019.

American Reception

The Campbell, in Grand Central Terminal, New York was the venue for the latest OS gathering organised by the Development Team on Monday 18th November.  It is over 10 years since the Stonyhurst Development team last travelled to America but it was pleasing to see how strong the transatlantic ties remain.
