Last term, Churcher's College welcome Sir Vince Cable to deliver a lecture entitled 'Money and Power'.

Sir Vince was Leader of the Liberal Democrats and served as Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills.

It was a fascinating evening, with Sir Vince discussing the world’s most influential political leaders’ impact on economics, before taking questions from Churcher’s students and the rest of the audience.

Sir Vince also met with Sixth Form Politics students in the school's Garden Room to discuss his thoughts on the major issues of the day and to give advice to those interested in a political career of their own.

The event – in conjunction with One Tree Books, with whom there was a book signing afterwards – was able to raise a substantial sum for the charity Off the Record, a young people’s mental health charity in Twickenham.
