Community endures is the theme of the annual journal 2020 which demonstrates that despite an extremely challenging year, times such as these reveal the enduring relevance of community.
We have seen staff and alumni from our schools battling to save lives in hospitals across the UK, DT teachers manufacturing PPE for frontline workers, minibuses delivering essential supplies, care home residents sewing scrubs for the NHS, and staff at the Carers Support Centre arranging food parcels for carers as far afield as Milton Keynes and Plymouth. We have seen our students and residents come together by exchanging art and letters and schools streaming live concerts to our care homes. We have seen our community pull together and collaborate like never before in a time of great need, living and breathing the values our charity stands for.
The stories in this journal show that, in the face of such adversity, we can take great pride in the ways the John Whitgift Foundation has pulled together and collaborated to support and inspire community.
