The Eton Action Fair is Eton Action’s biggest charity fundraiser event of the year!
In September, Eton College’s grounds are transformed into a charity fair. Games, stalls and performances are organised by the boys and staff of Eton College to raise money for charities supported by Eton Action (an independent charity conceived of and founded by Etonians to promote charitable activity and social responsibility). In addition to this, many outside organisations, mainly charitable foundations, are invited to arrange stalls and raise funds for their own causes. Now in its 48th year, the fair draws thousands of visitors from Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead, as well as parents and friends of Etonians, and raises large sums of money for a wide range of charitable causes. The income from all these events is pooled and divided between charitable foundations and projects chosen by the committee and voted on by every boy in the school.
