    Headmaster's 100-mile Charity Cycle Ride in aid of The Shewsy and Medic Malawi

    Shrewsbury School's Headmaster Mr Turner will be taking part in the Birmingham Vélo, a 100-mile sponsored cycle ride.

    He is aiming to raise £10,000 for the 'Shrewsbury School Eye Clinic' in a rural African hospital, run by Medic Malawi, and our inner-city Youth Club in Liverpool, The Shewsy, which we have been partnering since 1903.

    On his initiative, these two charities have become closely linked: in 2016, five girls from The Shewsy joined 11 Shrewsbury School pupils to work at the Shrewsbury School Eye Clinic and orphanage run by Medic Malawi. This was literally a life-changing experience: before the trip, only one of the girls from Liverpool was confident enough to apply for university. Since the trip, all five of them are now undergraduates, and John Dumbell, their youth worker, says that it was “amazing to see their self-confidence blossom because of their experience in Africa”. There will be another joint trip in July 2018.

    Mr Turner will join 15,000 other cyclists in the Birmingham Vélo on Sunday 24th September 2017. The route starts and ends in the centre of Birmingham and passes through Worcestershire and Staffordshire via Sandwell and Dudley, with 1,750 metres of climbing.

    A Magical Experience: Chapel Choir sings Evensong at Keble College, Oxford

    All are welcome to attend this service of Evensong sung by our Chapel Choir in the splendour of the chapel of Keble College, Oxford.

    The School's Chapel Choir is in very fine form under its Director, Mr Alex Mason, and numbers in the choir have blossomed since the introduction of full co-education.  It is both a delight and honour to sing in Keble college. Founded in memory of John Keble and designed by Butterfield, the chapel has a splendid accoustic for choral music and will, undoubtedly, provide a magical and memorable experience.

    After the service, the Headmaster, Director of Music, Mr John Moore and senior members of staff will be hosting a reception at the nearby Pitt Rivers Museum on South Parks Road (postcode OX1 3PP) for all members of the congregation.  All OS are very welcome to join us.

    We will be running a free Supporters' Coach from Shrewsbury to Oxford, departing from the Alington Hall at 2pm and leaving Oxford after the reception at about 9pm.

    Please contact Nikki Bevan (nbevan@shrewsbury.org.uk) to confirm your attendance at Evensong or to book a place on the coach.

    Please be sure not to miss out on what will be a wonderful experience.

    For those travelling to Oxford by car, information on parking near Keble College is published on their website:  http://www.keble.ox.ac.uk/conferences/parking.
