Our Friend’s scheme is grounded in our rich history with Cheltenham Ladies’ College. St. Hilda’s was founded in 1889 by Guild of the Cheltenham Ladies’ College as a charitable settlement. This meant CLC alumni could live at St. Hilda’s East in order to work with the local community. Today, this relationship has evolved, but girls continue to volunteer here and Guild members support our work through the Friends of St. Hilda’s East scheme; continuing the Guild’s century-old tradition of supporting charitable work in the east end of London. The Friends scheme is now open to all who wish to support and be a part of our community.
