‘WALK TO AFRICA’
As part of our charitable fundraising last year, we raised £3200 to build a sustainable well at Buyuni One School, Tanzania. This year, we are launching our programme of charitable activities with a major school event: a sponsored walk, in which students from the school will walk the distance between Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School and Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. We have measured the distance as the crow flies and each student will be asked to walk four and a half miles. The goal is for each student to raise a minimum of £10 sponsorship money. For the Form Group and individual raising the most there will be extra special prizes which will be announced after the event. The Walk will start at 2.00 p.m. and finish at 3.30 p.m. and is supported by a local sponsor, Green and Co., and our partner organisation in Africa, Aspire Sports Trust.
We know that BVGS students will enthusiastically support the students at Buyuni One by wholeheartedly taking part in the ‘Walk to Africa’ and we look forward to a great afternoon of charitable activity.
