The Houses at Avon House Preparatory School are named after famous people with a local connection. Emmeline Pankhurst’s daughter Sylvia lived in Woodford for many years.

Every year Pankhurst supports a local charity and this year they are raising money for Marie Curie.

Marie Curie is the UK’s leading end of life charity. They provide frontline nursing and hospice care, a free support line and a wealth of information and support on all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.

In previous years they have supported the National Deaf Children’s Society for which they held a sponsored walk at the Woodford Wells Cricket Club, the Docklands Sailing & Water-sports Centre Trust, Children in Need and ELHAP.
