Tettenhall College and the Great African Welly Walk

Tettenhall College decided to raise money for Farm Africa by organising a Great African Welly Walk.  

The younger pupils donned their wellies and set off on a safari around the school grounds, spotting pictures of African animals that had been hidden along the route. As they were also learning about Africa in class, the walk fitted in perfectly with the curriculum.

Older pupils also got involved, setting up a Farm Africa cafe to keep the Welly Walkers energised, and putting their marketing, organisational and fundraising skills into action!

Together the school raised £150, which will help farmers in eastern Africa learn about new crops and farming techniques which will help them give hunger the boot for good.

"It was a really nice event and a simple idea that didn’t take much work to organise. We got the whole school involved, including parents, and did it on the last week of term so it was something fun for everyone to look forward to.”

Sarah Goddard, Community Fundraising Manager at Farm Africa, said “Thank you so much to all of the staff and pupils for raising money for Farm Africa. We loved seeing your photos of your walk and hearing that the pupils learnt about Africa, whilst raising money to help rural communities look forward to a future free from hunger.”
