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.

Books catalogued in the UK ready for libraries in Malawi

School aid volunteer, Pauline, successfully catalogues the first UK books onto a database for Bumba library in Malawi. Being able to provide shelf ready catalogued books to our libraries in Malawi and Lesotho means that the books can immediately be borrowed from the library and saves our Library Assistant a great deal of time that can be spent instead working to help the learners and educators to support literacy learning. It’s another first for School Aid.
