Help us walk 2,527 miles for the Rural Refugee Network and John Badley Foundation
By Al McConville, Director of Learning and Innovation
The three schools are planning a joint fundraising event during the week of 16-22 May in support of our partner charity, the Rural Refugee Network, and the John Badley Foundation. Here’s the challenge: between us, we would love to walk (or bike or run) from Idlib in Syria to Bedales in a week. That’s 2,527 miles, or 4,066km. So, we’re asking that families plan to devote some (or all!) of their weekly exercise allowance in the week before half-term to clocking up miles for a good cause, and to get sponsored for doing so. More details will follow next week about how to use the ‘Pledgit’ platform to contribute, but we hope to generate an uplifting sense of community effort around this initiative without breaching social distancing guidelines.
