The Bellis Society, named to commemorate the College emblem, the daisy, was established in September 2003 during the 150th Anniversary of CLC as a means of thanking all those who have made a bequest in their Will in favour of College. Anyone who notifies the Foundation Office of such a bequest will be invited, with a guest, to a special lunch at College during the academic year to hear from the Principal and members of College Council about current activities and future plans. In addition, members of The Bellis Society will automatically receive invitations to important events in the College calendar.
Why leave a legacy to CLC?
We need funds to provide scholarships and bursaries for able and deserving students. We also need funds, not only to maintain the fabric of our historic buildings, but to upgrade the facilities of College to keep pace with technological and curricular advances. These developments are costly and cannot be provided through fees alone. A legacy donation is one of the most meaningful and enduring gifts you can give. Whatever their size, legacies directly benefit the College, its pupils and staff. Gifts may be directed towards specific areas of College life, or left without restrictions for allocation wherever College needs it most.
We are indebted to all those who so generously remember College in their Will and we hope that The Bellis Society will have a major impact on the future of CLC.
