PlanUK October 2013

We are committed supporters of Plan UK’s campaign to give girls across the world access to an education and the freedom from the fear of forced and early marriage. We pledged our support in 2013 and brought about one of the largest charity activities we have ever undertaken. On the International Day of the Girl in October 2013, all the girls at both Junior Senior School walked 10km each to raise funds and awareness of the plight of some the Worlds’ poorest girls. We have now completed the annual Word Wide Walk four years in a row – the latest seeing over 1200 pupils and staff from NHSG and our partner schools striding out in April 2017!

It is a huge team effort to organise a walk on this scale and it has resulted in the raising of around £35,000; surely an excellent example of how we can make something extraordinary happen when we work together.
