MUGA Appeal


On the morning of Monday 23 May we will be launching the Lichfield Cathedral School MUGA Appeal

We hope that the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) will be created on the site of the former swimming pool in the grounds of the Palace and will provide an all-weather sports facility for the school and the local community.

This is an ambitious building project with an appeal target to match – we aim to raise £35,000 in just one month!

Staff will be sharing our ‘Rain Stops Play’ appeal video with pupils on Monday morning and telling them more about the MUGA project.

But the campaign’s success rests with you! We need your help to make this dream become a reality and for everyone in the school community and beyond to get behind the MUGA appeal if we are to reach our £35,000 target.

Between Monday 23rd May and Tuesday 21st June please watch the 'Rain Stops Play' video, share it with your family and friends on social media and encourage them to support our MUGA Appeal. Any donation, large or small, will help us reach our target and create a sporting legacy for our pupils and others to enjoy.
