We cannot wait to welcome you to the first of many April Fooleries – Buy your ticket to donate to a great cause whilst enjoying the memory of David Lund in the heart of his school. If you cannot attend, why not donate anyway.
David Lund was an outstanding English teacher at University College School between 1967 and 1996. He was passionate about teaching, literature, jazz music, and creativity in all its forms. David left a significant mark on every student he taught and the wider community.
Through his commitment to nurturing every student, David successfully guided thousands of young people through their English language and literature studies.
Despite a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in 1985, David became head of the English department and established an ethos of joyful learning before retiring in 1996. Unfortunately, David passed away in 2010. The Lund Family generously bequeathed the residue of their estate to charities whose mission was to support young people’s creative development.
Eastside benefited from a donation of £10,000, with which this fund has been established. Our goal is to convert this initial gift into £1million to repay our debt of gratitude to the Lund family and build a long-lasting legacy that helps transform the educational experiences of many young people for years to come.
Did you know David Lund? Please send in your personalised video or written testimonial to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can add it to others on the fund’s webpages.
Please note: If the performance is postponed for any reason, your ticket will still be valid.
