Boys organise charity run

Mon, Apr 24th, 2023
Worth School

Four Year 13 students in Gervase House organised a charity run to raise money for Running Well, a charity that provides communities living in remote and deprived parts of Uganda with access to clean water.

The boys planned the run as part of the service component of their International Baccalaureate (IB) qualification and they got all boys in the House to take part.

They set a target of raising £1,000 but have smashed that by already raising £1,785 – money which will go towards a water borehole to be built at Naloose, a community of approximately 2,250 people. The community live in a remote, rural area with no clean water provision and they are currently using the swamp water shared with the animals because the nearest water borehole is far away and congested.

Well done to the four boys who organised the event and all boys in Gervase taking part. You can still sponsor them by clicking here.

Each House at Worth has its own charity which it supports throughout the academic year, raising money for a variety of causes. This reflects the values which are fundamental to the formation of who we become.
