£8,800 raised for charity

Pupils running

In late November, all our pupils strolled up to Wandsworth Common to take part in our annual sponsored cross country run. Pupils ran as many one kilometre laps as they could, with the money raised going to two charities: Go MAD in Tanzania and A21 Campaign. Go MAD exists to improve health and living standards in rural villages in northern Tanzania and was set up by one of the Foundation parents at Thames. This year our contribution to Go MAD will save many lives by funding their mobile health clinics and malaria prevention in remote villages with no access to healthcare. A21 Campaign works to abolish human trafficking in the 21st century. Our contribution goes to their Crisis Care shelters which provide basic essentials: housing, clothes, food, legal, medical support and care to rescued victims of human trafficking.

Thames pupils raised an amazing £8,800, with Jimmy, Year 10, and Cecilia, Year 8, winning the individual boys' and girls' trophies, running over 23 laps between them on a bitterly cold blustery day. Well done to all and to the parents and supporters who came to cheer them on and helped raise this amazing sum.
