Weʼre raising £15,000 to support charities through our Whole School Sponsored Walk
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The entire Shiplake College cohort will be embarking on a 20 mile walk along the River Thames on Friday 28 September. As part of the Shiplake College Charity Walk, the pupils and staff will head off along the river from Moulsford in the morning, and aim to complete the walk, returning to Shiplake within six hours. Some pupils will aim to run the event, whilst others will take to the river and row or kayak the route.
With well over 450 pupils and staff taking part in the walk, we are hoping to raise a lot of money through sponsorship, to be able to support very worth causes.
PLEASE STATE NAME(S) AND HOUSE OF WHO YOU ARE SUPPORTING IN YOUR MESSAGES! WE HOPE THAT EVERY PUPIL IS ABLE TO MEET THEIR TARGET OF £50 EACH.
GAP AFRICA is the main charity being supported though the walk. Details of further charities will be announced in due course.
A charity much supported over the years by Shiplake College. Gap Africa is run by Marcel Wagner, who has been associated with Shiplake for many years and still leads the expedition society trips to Kenya. As part of the trip, students visit schools in the Kikundu region where money is desperately needed for resources and buildings.
