This morning I visited Gorse Hall Primary School in Stalybridge to meet with pupils who form the ECO Committee, and launch the school’s charity wellython. The school’s ECO Committee recently visited the House of Parliament and Downing Street and were keen to tell me about their visit.
I was also delighted to launch the school’s charity wellython, where each teacher and pupil will walk one mile around school grounds, with a target of walking 500 miles to hopefully raise £500. The money raised will go towards the opening of the Ilamula house, an orphanage for young vulnerable girls under 16 years old in South Africa.
Gorse Hall do fantastic work with their ECO Committee, and it sounds like they had a great visit to Parliament and Downing Street. It’s always heartening to see young people interested and passionate about environmental issues.
The wellython is a great idea, and for a very worthy cause. I have no doubt they will be successful in achieving their target, and I'm sure it will be worth the aching legs afterwards!
