Supporting Mercy Ships

Supporting Mercy Ships

It was fantastic to welcome David Hatch, and his partner Diana, to lead a Sixth Form assembly this week on Mercy Ships, a charity the school has passionately fundraised for this year. David, an Old Caterhamian who left the school in 1955, a retired Professor of Paediatric Anaesthesia at Great Ormond Street, and Mercy Ships advocate, inspired Sixth Form pupils to keep up the great work supporting this charity in his assembly. David reminded pupils of the organisations role in deploying hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, and how funds raised have enabled surgeries to people with little to no access to care. Pupils were full of questions for David about his work and how they might continue to support Mercy Ships and engage further with international development opportunities.
