KIDS at seven schools in London’s East End have organised a sponsored walk to get cash for educational equipment in a deprived area of South Africa.
They are raising money at Mile End Park tomorrow (Thursday) to buy equipment including computers so they can make email pen-pals.
The seven schools, Phoenix, Halley, Chisenhale, Sir William Borrough, Central Foundation Girls, Olga and Malmesbury, have been twinned’ with seven schools in Qumbu, near Johannesburg.
