Families enjoy a day at the warehouse during the school holidays

School Aid welcomed some families to the warehouse during the school holidays. The children who attended were able to pack and decorate the boxes of books going to Africa and also enclose a lovely message to the children who will receive these books. They learnt about the work that School Aid does and completed a special open day activity sheet. All the children had great fun and received an attendance certificate at the end of the day.

Fantastic day for the School Aid Fun Run

The 5th annual School Aid Fun Run took place on Sunday 1st July at Bulstrode Park, Gerrards Cross. It was an extremely hot day but, despite soaring temperatures, people turned out to run or walk the 2k and 5k routes. We had families with young children in buggies, dogs and keen runners all taking part in this beautiful park. We also had two giraffes named Tutwa and Twiga running in full costume hoping to raise lots of money for School Aid. There was also an inter-schools competition, organised by Gayhurst School. We are delighted to say that over £2,000 was raised at the event. View the results and times here.
