SPONSORED WALK - PART OF THE CURRICULUM?

Six lads from Sheringham High School organised and took part in a sponsored walk for charity on 30 August, as part of their GCSE coursework, and managed to raise in excess of 250 for BREAK Charity.

Nicky Sadler, Harry Heathfield, James Hagon, Alex Silcock, Ben Little and Callum Barnes who all live in Sheringham and surrounding villages are just about to start year 11 at the High School and had to do something for their local community as part of their Citizenship short course GCSE.  They chose to walk the five and a half miles from Cromer to Sheringham taking the Peddars Way route, beginning and ending at the BREAK Charity shops in the towns.  Not only did they need to plan the route, but also ensure that they had people acting as Marshalls at various intervals and of course, ensure they were well prepared, so they brought with them a first aid kit, a first aid book, a route map and plenty of provisions!

Callum Barnes, one of the walkers said,  "Although it took us three and a quarter hours to complete, we really enjoyed ourselves.  We all go to Sheringham High School but we don't get to see each other much in the summer holidays as we live all over North Norfolk.  So when we did get together we had loads to catch up on and had a really good laugh.  We'll definitely do it again."

The GCSE requires that an event to benefit the local community is organised and run, which could include arranging a talk with a celebrity speaker or organising a fundraising event amongst other things.  Liz Holman, Community Fundraising Officer for BREAK is impressed with the boys' initiative.  "It's great the way they organised this by themselves and I'm really delighted that they chose BREAK as the charity they walked for."

If you would like to help BREAK by organising a fundraising event or volunteering your time, please contact Liz Holman on 01263 820710.
