On Friday 20th May, Prep took part in the “Walk a Mile in my Shoes” fundraiser in aid of “Stand by Me”. Pupils walked a mile “around the block” with a heavy load of water in milk cartons. This really gave us an insight into the work involved just in collecting water for countless children around the world.
Jonny Farrell, a worker for Stand by Me, came to assembly and led us in workshops teaching us the importance of clean water. One water filter costs just £20 to assemble in Ethiopia, providing a family with clean, safe drinking water for two years and we know that the money raised will go towards making a lasting difference in the lives of children in Ethiopia.
Many thanks for your continued help and support for all our fundraisers throughout the year,
Mrs Glover and the CAG Girls
We welcomed back Jonny from Stand by Me to assembly on 29th June to accept a cheque for £575 raised through our "Walk a Mile in their shoes" event. The cheque was presented by the CAG girls and we thank everyone for their generous support.
