A small group of 4 Prince’s Trust students from Writhlington School recently decided to do a sponsored climb to raise money for The Rainbow Trust, a children’s charity that supports families with seriously ill children.
This activity was part of their chosen Community Project towards their Personal Development and Employability qualification.
As a group, they set themselves a target of trying to scale the indoor sports centre climbing wall 100 times in 3 hours with a fundraising target of £250.
They actually managed to exceed both their climbing and fundraising targets, by completing 126 climbs of the wall and securing nearly £300 pounds to help the charity and its support workers continue with their valued work.
On completion of the activity, one student added
I really enjoyed the climbing and it was great to be able to help the charity.
