The Ruth Strauss Foundation is a charity that is dear to many Wellingtonians’ hearts. Its aim is to ensure families facing the death of a parent from cancer are offered professional emotional support, as well as raising awareness of the need for more research in the fight against non-smoking related lung cancers. 

Over the last year, through various fundraising events, the Wellington Community has raised over £45,000, for this invaluable charity. As a thank you for our efforts the charity gifted us 750 ‘Lady in Red’ tulip bulbs to plant in the College grounds.

On a frosty November morning, some willing (if not slightly chilly) lower sixth pupils came together, under the guidance of our Head Gardner, Mark Dodd, to plant the tulips around College. It will be wonderful to see them bloom in the Spring.
