Ralph and Cathy Townsend Bursary Fund

Please help us to raise the final £100,000 needed to reach our £2million target for the Ralph & Cathy Townsend Bursary Fund. In 2016 the Fund was established in acknowledgement for all that Dr & Mrs Townsend have achieved for Winchester.

At the start of Dr Townsend’s tenure there were 34 boys receiving bursarial support with a value of £305,000. Today, however, there are 124 boys in the school who receive financial assistance to the value of £3.1 million.

Dr Townsend’s vision has always been to keep Winchester a broad society which benefits all at the School, despite the ever-increasing cost of the fees. Thanks to the generosity of many donors we have secured £1.9 million, which is helping to part fund bursaries for eight boys.


Ralph & Cathy Townsend 2016

Dr Ralph and Mrs Cathy Townsend

Ralph and Cathy are extremely grateful for all the support this cause has received and they are following the progress of the bursary recipients with interest. This Bursary Fund will ensure that their legacy continues to support future generations of Wykehamists.

In Cloister Time last year, the Wykehamist published a wonderful Vale to Dr R D Townsend, and of course Cathy. The author sums up perfectly all that they accomplished over their 11 years at Winchester.
