Northam Walk 2018
One pupil wrote of his experience of the Northam Walk 2018:
A Sense of Achievement
On Sunday 4th March, a group of about 25 pupils and some teachers set off on a 15 mile walk in the name of the City Reach charity. It was a sponsored walk with the aim of raising money to help keep the charity running. The charity helps support children after school and during the day who would otherwise have nowhere to go. The charity is absolutely integral to their lives and yet struggles for funding, which is why events like this are so important throughout the year. There are some pictures attached of the group of us that did the walk. We were incredibly fortunate with the weather and all in all, it was a pretty fun day.
There are various events throughout the year, so don’t worry if you missed out this time. There are various activity days, so if you’re interested in coming along and helping out, there will be details about the following in the next couple of months.
So, if you want to donate towards such a great cause, the link is below.
Thank you to the staff that organised the walk and who walked with them on the day. For more information about the City Reach Project please visit: http://www.schoolstogether.org/projects/city-reach-northam/
