Water great way for pupils to raise funds
Kind George initiates a pupil pipeline
A SEVEN-year-old helped raise funds for charity so less fortunate people could have water.
George Quick, a pupil at St Mary’s Primary School in Old Amersham, wanted to raise funds for WaterAid UK after realising the effect a lack of water has on children like him.
George said: “I looked up all about Water Aid because I wanted to raise money for children to have water like we have. My whole class joined in and some people ended up getting wet as we passed the water down the line. I am really happy that we raised so much money for the charity.”
George initiated the charity’s pupil pipeline challenge, where children stood in a line and passed water jugs down. Every £1 raised equates to one metre of piping in Africa.
Over £120 was raised and the teachers were very impressed with the initiative that George had shown that would subsequently benefit many children in Africa of a similar age.
