BREWERY Road-based WWF-UK received a welcome £2,500 donation from the ‘Diamond House’ team at St Andrew’s School last Thursday morning at the group’s Living Planet Centre HQ.
The generous donation was raised through a school sponsored bounce on a bouncy castle. The proceeds will go towards WWF’s conservation work.
Schools & Youth Visits Manager, Alison Peacham, said: “We would like to congratulate all children involved in the sponsored bounce for their efforts in raising an amazing amount of money to go towards WWF’s conservation work.”
St Andrew’s pupils are regular visitors to WWF-UK’s award-winning Living Planet Centre in Woking. According to Alison, this shows that young people care about environmental issues and want to take positive action to help.
Simon Lewis, a member of the WWF Teachers’ Panel, added: “We wanted to bounce the St Andrew’s community into an awareness of wildlife conservation and sustainable development, thereby helping WWF in safeguarding our beautiful world for future generations.”
Fundraising events of this kind have a significant impact, creating much needed money for WWF-UK’s goal to preserve the bio-
diversity of our planet while connecting young minds with solutions to global problems.
