Key Stage 4 young leaders arranged a whole school event to raise funds for a local charity, Prevent Breast Cancer. Being an all-girl school the young leaders particularly identified with the work of the charity. They arranged for the whole school to take part in a sponsored run hoping to raise £1,000. Each pupil chose to either walk, run or skip a tenth of a marathon around the route the young leaders created. To their surprise the young leaders ended up with a fundraising total of over £5,000!
"I have really enjoyed the Young Leaders Award because it’s taught me a lot of skills that I didn’t have before, like patience and learning to cooperate and understanding other people’s points of view. "
