Vaughan Foundation Ball 2018

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday for the annual Vaughan Foundation Ball.

Over 250 parents, past pupils and staff gathered at the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington for a wonderful evening of food, music and entertainment. Mr Cardozo, Head of Maths, and Mr Cogavin, Teacher of English & French, kept the dance floor full performing with their fantastic band The Cardinals, and we were delighted to welcome 90-year-old Old Vaughanian Mr Desmond Seamen who was named Guest of Honour and brought his whole family along for the occasion.

TV Presenter, Journalist and current parent Mr Matt Lorenzo ensured the laughter and bids rolled in as auctioneer for the evening, and we are very grateful to everyone who donated items for the auction and all those who placed a bid or entered the raffle. Thanks to you, the Auction & Raffle raised nearly £10,000 for the Vaughan Foundation.
