“An inspirational leader and coach – a foundation stone of LRGS”
You will no doubt have your own memories of Shaun but the words above must surely reflect the respect and admiration that we all felt for him.
Shaun, of course, would be the last to admit it. Indeed he would have been truly surprised and humbled by the number of lives that he had touched and what he meant to so many.
As a school, we feel it is important to keep his memory alive and to acknowledge the huge impact that he had on hundreds of pupils, former pupils, staff, governors and parents.
A Memorial Fund is being set up in his name and we hope that as many people as possible will wish to support it. Since a large part of his time here at LRGS was spent on the rugby and cricket pitches encouraging and coaching the boys, we feel it appropriate to provide a memorial that reflects his passion for both sports. There are several projects that we have in mind ranging from cricket honours board to cricket benches to a spectator stand on the Memo fields. We are being ambitious as we believe that anything less would not be worthy of such a great man.
We hope that you will wish to be part of our plans and will consider donating towards the Shaun Higgins Memorial Fund. You will find attached to this page a giving and gift aid response letter which provides more details of how you can help. Alternatively you may like to make a donation by credit/debit card or on-line through MyDonate. If you elect to “gift aid” your donation this will add an extra 25% to your gift at no cost to you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter and we do hope that you will feel able to contribute in some way.
