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.
