Why I give...

DOUGLAS’ STORY – a letter to Lucy

Dear Lucy
I was so delighted to hear that you are really getting the best out of the College. This is exactly what I had hoped for when I developed the idea of the Bernard Drake Bursary, and am both proud and grateful for what you have achieved to demonstrate its benefit. I was always delighted to hear from your 'predecessor' Matt, a wonderful young man whose achievements and personality I admire very much... and I can see you are equally as impressive and diligent!

Douglas gives back to his school to honour a much-admired teacher, instrumental in shaping his future. The sheer joy he feels at giving others access to the education he enjoyed is priceless. Thanks to his generous gifts, Old Eastbournian Douglas has given Matt, Lucy and Ellie a life-changing experience that they would otherwise not have had. This year, Jake will be the fourth pupil to whom Douglas has given a life-altering injection of opportunity. 

Be like Douglas – inject opportunity today

The difference you make

As an organisation, we have always received generous support from our loyal community. This has enabled us to build and grow over 155 years, developing enviable state of the art facilities. It is time to really shine a light on this wonderful campus, and our dedicated staff, and share the extraordinary Eastbourne College experience far and wide.

With this in mind, we are committed to accelerating our fundraising to provide essential support for young people from a diverse range of backgrounds by improving access to education for the most disadvantaged. Each one of us can help support a brighter future and shape the next generation of proud Eastbournians by giving the gift of education.

Please help us make a difference to a young person by giving them the best educational experience around.
