St Dominic’s Sixth Form College first year students recently completed a sponsored walk around Harrow on the Hill. This was partly to raise funds for a primary school in Africa, but it was also an act of solidarity with people in the world who do not have access to food, clean water, education and a public health service. The College sponsors the Chilingani 2 Primary School in Malawi, enabling 500 children to have a hot meal in school every day for a year.
College Principal Andrew Parkin, who accompanied the students on the walk, commented that ‘through our partners Mary’s Meals, we are able to make sure these children go to school and get an education, along with a nutritious hot meal. It’s very moving to think that our efforts here will have such a huge impact on so many youngsters in Malawi. A good education is crucial and it’s nice to see our students helping to make this a reality for children in our partner school.’ The College hopes to raise over £4,000.
