The Vaughan Foundation
From the Chairman, Mr Frank McGettigan
The Vaughan Foundation is a Charity which very quietly but very effectively works towards achieving its charitable objectives. In many ways the Foundation appears like a duck gliding across the water. It all may seem to be effortless and a perfect picture of smooth motion, but underneath the surface there is a mass of activity in order to keep afloat and raise the much needed funds to support the pupils of the School and the wider community.
The Foundation could not undertake the wide range of work that it does without the huge amount of support it receives from a wide range of people and organisations. I hope that these pages will give you some idea of the work undertaken by the various elements of the Foundation:
The Vaughan Sports Association
The Vaughan Music Association
The Old Vaughanians Association and Football Club
The Vaughan Parents Association
I would appeal to all of you to get involved in the life of the School and the Foundation. Come along and support the wide range of events being held each year. Whether it is a more formal event such as the Vaughan Foundation Dinner or Saturday morning football with the pupils, I can promise that it is always enjoyable. It is only by everyone working together and providing whatever help they can, be it financial or time, that we can continue to develop and provide the support which the School and local community needs.
1. To provide extra-curricular facilities for pupils of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School
2. The promotion of community participation through sport, music and the arts within the greater London area
3. To help young people develop their skills and talents enabling them to participate in society as mature and responsible adults
4. To advance the of education of the public and pupils of the School
