Wilford primary school children proud of fundraising achievement

PUBLISHED:

How can a school trip to Southwell Minster and a workshop hosted by Christian Aid result in five toilet blocks for school children in Africa?

The answer lies in the kindness, passion an amazing entrepreneurial skills of a group of Year 4 children at South Wilford Primary School.

Erin, Polly, Lucy, Ryan, Ruby, Evie, Jida, Sam, Idina and Lucas have organised a number of fund raising events. Parents and friends of the school have bought tickets to a Royal Wedding disco, sent toys for a toy sale, baked cakes and one pupil even visited 100 toilets in Nottingham in 10 hours which alone raised over £350!

The final event was a sponsored walk where children walked around the large school playing field carrying bottles full of water. The idea for this particular event came from Sam who hoped that it would give the children of South Wilford some idea of the day-to-day struggles faced by those less fortunate than us.

Liz Wilson, a volunteer from Toilet Twinning attended the Water Walk and was the official starter having presented the school with their well-deserved certificate of achievement.
Liz said “I am extremely proud of the school and in particular the children who have been so committed to this cause. They certainly live-out the school’s mission of Discovering Together, Fullness of Life”.
