Category: Juniors Published Date Hits: 2781

Hello, in the summer of 2015 Esme Wilde, Lily Thompson and Harriers own Caitlin Smith are going along with Holmfirth High School to Malawi. They are going for 21 days and whilst they are there we will be visiting schools that are a lot less fortunate than ours in Kirklees, these schools are undeveloped we will also be visiting an orphanage, here they will visit many ill children. The girls are organising a fundraiser off their own backs and have asked for the details to be published and promoted on the Harriers Website, so Caitlin will explain more below...

CaitlinPlease come along to Holmfirth Harriers Neiley playing fields on Saturday 7th December 2013 to be part of our sponsored "Run4Malawi".

This is a fundraiser which will enable us to go with school to Malawi in 2015, we have to raise £3495 each to be part of this school expedition. Whilst we are in the poor country of Malawi we shall be visiting our partnership school there. On our visit there we will be building walls, we will be contributing to their education and therefore their future and expieriencing some of their culture.

We will also be visting an orphanage that homes ill children suffering with HIV, here we shall be visiting the children and doing thigs such as cooking and cleaning for them, all the money we raise will go to the Malawi fund.

The idea is that you collect sponsors from your friends and family, you need to raise over £3 to run the race. You can collect a sponsor sheet (this will be attached to the sign up sheet). If cannot collect any sponsors or just wish to run the race you can sign up on the day.
