2014 City Reception
We were honoured that The Right Honourable The Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd (W 61-65) agreed to be our guest speaker at our City Event on 28 January 160 Rugbeians, Rugby parents and guests gathered in the historic surroundings of the Old Hall, Lincoln’s Inn. After an update from the Head Master, Lord Thomas spoke passionately about his own experiences of Rugby School the importance of widening access to education and the powerful impact the Arnold Foundation has had on transforming the lives of so many young people. The occasion also marked the official launch of the Patrick Derham Bursary Award, by Peter Bennett-Jones, Chairman of the Arnold Foundation. The Award, established by the Governing Body as a tribute to Patrick Derham’s time as Head Master, will support an Arnold Foundation pupil at Rugby School.
