Early indications from the Gala in November, hosted by Jesse Norman MP, suggest that a magnificent sum of over £500,000 was raised for the new senior school building. We were thrilled to receive an anonymous pledge of £200,000. Guest speaker Stephanie Flanders, economist and OP, preceded a live auction with Lord Poltimore of Sotheby’s who raised just under £86,000, and an additional £42,000 was raised in the silent auction. Thanks to generous sponsorship, all ticket sales will fund the new building as well as the numerous pledges on the night to name classrooms and other outdoor spaces. We are most grateful to each and every St Paul’s family who participated and supported the new building project. Of course, a huge thank you goes to the fantastic Gala committee chaired by Kate Carrafiell.
