Over the summer, I had the pleasure to teach in South Africa. Both in the Mamelodi Township and later on in inner city Johannesburg. Whilst I was in Mamelodi, I visited the school library on a free period and noticed a new delivery of books - the same books I had been using in my PGCE placement school.
It turned out that School-Aid had recently sent them a supply of books that would mean for the first time ever, the kids would have lots of information to go with what the teachers told them. Something I know they will lap up!
Now, anyone who knows what happened when I ran the Berlin Marathon, will know that I vowed never to do it again. But I've solely entered it because of raising money for charity. And I'm really hoping that this small charity could get a little boost from my plodding along. the marathon is part of a big raft of races that I'm running, so surely it's worth a little bit of cash?!

School-Aid sends good quality schoolbooks and other educational materials direct to schools in disadvantaged communities in English speaking African countries. It collects all these materials in the UK from schools and other donors. Volunteers then sort and pack them prior to being transported in containers to African schools.
As the General Manager at School Aid,we love that you found our books in the African school. We wish you well for your up and coming races.
