AN APPEAL FOR SUPPORT FROM: Professessor James Raven, LittD FBA FSA, Chair, English-Speaking Union

I am sure you can imagine the impact that the current COVID-19 situation is having on the charity’s finances. The loss of commercial income from Dartmouth House functions is immediate and we have cancelled or postponed all our fundraising events for the summer. With your support, we hope to be able to continue to deliver our educational programmes and competitions in schools from September; we also hope to provide resources to schools, pupils and parents on-line in the very near future. Of course, none of this has ever been possible without the generosity of our members, alumni and supporters – but we are facing a very difficult financial situation. If you have been considering making a donation, or are able to, I would be immensely grateful for your support.

I hope also that ESU friendship and community will contribute, by email, phone or other safe contact, to enhancing the kindness and understanding of each other and to supporting those who might feel especially isolated.

Please keep well and safe.

James Raven

Our children have lots to say but often they don’t have the tools with which to say it. Discover Debating gives them those tools.
