Walk for water fundraiser.
28 September 2017 - 4 October 2017| Free
This event runs from 28th Sept – 4th Oct.
Señora Mitchell of North Town Primary School Walk for water, Raleigh International fundraiser.
As you may know I am volunteering this year to work with communities in Costa Rica/ Nicaragua and have to raise £2700 for my expedition. I hope to highlight the water projects that Raleigh International run by doing a fundraising walk. Recently a team in Nicaragua connected a village where they previously had a 3hr round trip to fetch water. For families that could mean approximately 9hrs/day to provide for their basic needs. My walk would be for this time every day, which happens to be similar to the time I would normally be in school, for a week. This shows how their lives are restricted & how it would be impossible to have a job like mine. I will start each morning in the playground before I set off, any donations gratefully received! My walk will be in Longrun, Nertherclay and our area. At the end of each day I will tweet how far I have walked/ how much water I have carried & drunk/ how much money I’ve raised & how tired I am! If you want to know more or would like to help do not hesitate in asking. muchísimas gracias
