Pupils’ at The Broxbourne School took part in a non-uniform day to raise money for two charities. Over £2,200 was raised, which will be divided between the charity Help for Heroes and Talk Education Partnership.
Help for Heroes supports those with injuries and illnesses attributable to their service in the British Armed Forces. Every course and activity offered aims to empower ex-servicemen and women to look beyond illness and injury, regain their purpose, reach their potential and have a positive impact on society
Talk Education Partnership is a small non-profit charity working to improve educational opportunities for children in rural Uganda through training teachers and supporting redevelopment projects in schools. This is the charity which helped us set up our school link with Namwaya School in Uganda. The money we raised last year helped to build a mains-fed water tank in our link school Namwaya primary. This means that the children no longer have to waste valuable school time collecting water from a local well. It will also save lives and reduce suffering the next time East Africa experiences drought.
Thank you to all parents, pupils and staff who supported the fundraising event.
