WE Walk for Water
On Friday 3rd May, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays joined forces with the Eco-Comittee of Three Bridges Primary School, to raise money and awareness for water issues around the world. This walk was in support of WE Charity's global campaign uniting communities across the UK and North America with a new goal to deliver clean water to 80,000 people in developing communities in Africa, Asia and South America.
With 20 students from Three Bridges Primary and over 50 from the Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays, we formed a striking group as we walked a 2.5 mile loop around Manor Royal. This distance is just a fraction of the miles walked by women and children in developing communities to fetch water for their families. It was was a humble reminder of how lucky we are - all we need to do is turn on a tap.
With over £450 raised, it was a great success and we'll be sure to repeat next year - maybe this time with other business from around Manor Royal!
