TODAY (April 7th) is National Walking Day – the perfect opportunity to tell you about a challenge that some King’s Ely Senior girls are doing to raise funds and awareness for Hope4Malawi, which is one of our partner charities.

Each House at King’s Ely Senior sponsors a child in Malawi through the Hope4Malawi charity, enabling them to go to school each day and receive an education.

But girls in Torfrida House have decided to go a step further (quite literally!) this Easter break to support the charity.

Natalie Youssef, joint Head of House for Torfrida, said: “In Malawi, it can take a couple of hours every day for a student to walk to school. We have decided to do a sponsored walk during the Easter holidays by walking the same amount of time (roughly 10 hours) it takes some children to walk to school over a week. The money we raise will go towards helping more students in Malawi to go to school and receive an education.”
