Supporting:

For the past 7 years we have supported orphaned and vulnerable children in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We have given over 500 children the chance to go to school with uniforms, shoes and school fees paid. In addition, many thousands have been touched by sport, art, chess, music, and dance and had access to educational support and sometimes a nutritional meal.

The aim of our walk is to raise £3,750 which would enable us to support schooling for 50 children.

 

Donate: As little or much as you like on the day
