Ludgrove goes #RedForRuth

Links in this section

Ludgrove welcomed a special guest, former professional cricketer, Ben Ladd Gibbon, to talk to the boys about the Ruth Strauss Foundation that helps young families facing the death of a parent. 

Every year the cricket community goes #RedForRuth to raise vital funds and so Ludgrove chose the 1st XIs’ last Home match to show the School’s support with red stumps and bucket hats replacing Ludgrove’s normal blue colours. 

The next day, the School went the extra mile and took on the ‘Bucket Hat Challenge’. Many boys and staff tried to flip a bucket hat from their foot onto their head (including Radley’s Mr Gunson and Mr Barber pictured below) with only a few successes.

Well done all for getting behind this amazing charity.
