Michael Morpurgo (OKS) talks King’s, his charitable foundation & literature
Michael Morpurgo (OKS 1957-62) talked to the school about a number of topics—including his time at King’s, and the inspiration behind some of his books and his charity—in a Virtually King’s Week event on Wednesday evening.
The former Captain of School commented on the many formative experiences he had in Canterbury as we saw photographs of his schoolboy days. Among the notable memories were images of Michael escorting the Queen Mother on her visit to the Precincts in 1962, as well as cricket and rugby team photographs at the foot of the Norman Staircase.
We also heard of the wonderful work of the supporting charity of Virtually King’s Week, Farms for City Children, which Michael and his wife Clare founded in 1976.
