About
There are approximately 200 families at LAE Tottenham - around 40% of the school population - who need weekly, ongoing support for essentials. There are families who have to choose between feeding their children, or topping up the electricity meter. Students who cannot afford clothes to wear to school. Children at LAE Tottenham who are considering dropping out of their A Levels to support their families.

The impact of the Covid pandemic has been worse than any of us could have imagined. LAE Tottenham wants to set up a hardship fund to continue to support LAE T families who need help, for as long as they need it.

A socially distanced group of LAE T and Highgate staff, pupils and alumni, are running a marathon, from Highgate to Tottenham, to raise money and awareness of this. Although some students receive additional support from the government, many narrowly miss out. £15 a week would make a life changing difference to these families.

A generous, anonymous donor has pledged to match all donations, up to a total value of £25,000, to support the establishment of this ongoing hardship fund. As we do not know when this need will end, we hope donors will consider making a regular monthly or annual donation. With the match, an donation of £300 - which breaks down to £25 a month - plus Gift Aid, would give a family £15 extra a week, all year.
