In our experience, donors give with their hearts as well as their heads. You may have your own giving priorities and charitable passions. We would love to hear from you about your giving priorities and to discuss the long term aims and objectives of the Dragon to see if there are any further long term projects that fit your own giving aims. We can also talk to you about planned and tax efficient giving.
On the August Bank Holiday weekend in 1979, fourteen-year-old Timothy Knatchbull went out on a boat trip off the coast of County Sligo, Ireland. It was a trip that would cost four lives — and change his own for ever.
Timothy and his identical twin Nicholas were two of five brothers who attended the Dragon School between 1956 and 1978. Nicholas was tragically killed alongside his grandfather, Lord Mountbatten, his grandmother and a family friend.
The Nicholas Knatchbull Memorial Bursaries were set up to give children whose families could not otherwise afford it the chance of a Dragon School education. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book through the Dragon School will be donated to the fund.

The original aim of the Bun Break Club was to engage young OD donors through networking events - we still plan to encourage our young givers to support our bursary pupils, but in more imaginative and fun ways; for example through fundraising activities and year group giving, text giving as well as the conventional standing orders. Our Industry groups will also engage the wider Dragon Community and provide opportunities on the first rung of their career and career changers.
Looking for Champions
We are looking for Industry, Year Group and Overseas 'Champions' to head up our Dragon groups and to help us devise and plan some interesting events. We welcome your thoughts and ideas for venues, industry groups, drinks gatherings and fund-raising events.
With enhanced communications and dynamic leadership from our Old Dragons, we have every confidence that the Dragon Industry groups will gather momentum and grow organically. Members of the Bun Break Club will be invited to these events free of charge or tickets will be discounted.
