This years event is being supported by 8 local primary schools, a total of around 1000 children, who will be walking 6km carrying 6ltrs of water on their backs in recognition of what children have to do in Malawi, and other African countries, to get water for their families.
Our contact club in Holland Apeldorne et Loo are also taking part with us on 23rd March 2018 with around 600 children walking there to support the same project.
4 schools walked at University of Kent Sport on 23rd March, one walked at their school and three more are walking over next few months (to fit in with timetables at schools).
All the money they raise in sponsorship will be match funded in Holland so the projects get twice the sum raised by the children.
Club members carried out talks to the mainly year 6 children at their schools to explain more about the projects and how their support will make a significant difference.
Our thanks go out to all the schols involved for their support - Blean Primary, St Peters Primary, Hernhill Primary, Hampton Juniors, Joy Lane Primary, Whitstable Juniors and Swalecliffe Primary, plus our sponsors and supporters Mc Donalds, Canterbury Business Equipment, Hollamby Estates (2005) and Kent University Sport.
Without their support it would not be possible.
If you, or your school would like to get involved in Walk 4 WAter 2019 on 22nd March 2019 then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org we would love to hear from you.
