‘Men of Fields’ Fundraising

Did you know that GFS have a Dad’s Cricket Club known as ‘Men of Fields’? Every year they raise money for charity and the school fund. Today (26 June 2015) the club will be remembering Rayyan by walking round the Isle of Wight – only 67 miles! They have raised £12,100 so far – surpassing their initial target of £10,000 – for Great Ormond Street Hospital who cared for Rayyan during his short illness.  You can support them through JustGiving. Thank you.
