Walk for Water
Final miles count 7842.75!!!!!
We set ourselves the challenge of walking the 5,500 mile distance between Huddersfield and Ethiopia with Walking for Water as our Lenten Charity campaign. This supports the work of CAFOD in providing access to clean water in developing countries.
As we walked, we were walking alongside those in Ethiopia who travel miles every day to collect water.
We encouraged staff and students to send in their steps to add to the total distance walked and tracked the distance travelled on a display in reception.
PE lessons also involved walking or running laps of the field to add to our total. We kept a tally of each year group to see who did the most miles.
There have been some great individual efforts from staff and students. We did fantastically well actually walking a grand total of 7842.75 miles.
Through the campaign we have also raised awareness of the need to respect the world’s resources and to be thankful for our own blessings.
Thank you for your kind donations via ParentPay which will make a real difference to supply water to a community in Ethiopia.
