Many of you will know that our amazing Vicar, Reverend Adam Friend has recently been on sabbatical and completing some very serious challenges in order to raise money for a variety of causes.
First of all Adam, son Henry and friends Ian and Tod Tordoff cycled coast to coast to raise in excess of £1000 for WaterAid whose mission is to change normal for millions of people within a generation — by getting clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to everyone, everywhere.
This week, the Staff at Tarvin Primary School pledged to walk to school this morning in exchange for £500 towards helping a school in Ibanda (Uganda) to build staff accommodation for teachers to enable them to stay on site rather than having to walk long distances to school and then teach all day (school hours 8am — 5.30pm).
The Tarvin teachers and staff walked on Tuesday 16th July and have raised an incredible £1300. (And for Mr Davies, the Headteacher, that meant getting up at 3.30am in order to walk the 11 miles to school!)
The gauntlet of a promise from a local business to match fund that if they walked a second morning was thrown down and so on Wednesday, they did it all again! Meaning that a total of £2600 towards the £4500 needed to build the house has been raised so far.
If anyone would like to donate (if you haven't already) please contact Adam or pop into school. Adam would like to thank all the staff at Tarvin Primary for such a great idea, for doing it and for the willingness to do it all over again! Well done all of you.
