Africa's Children in Education

Wacky Hair Fun Run In Aid of ACE!

Last week, we were invited into Rainford C of E Primary School and presented with a cheque for an amazing £933 which the children had raised for our ACE “Buy a Block” appeal!

Following a presentation that we did to them a while ago about the work of ACE and Arise School, the Rainford School Council came up with the idea of the Wacky Hair Fun Run. At the end of last term, the children came to school with all sorts of weird and wonderful hairdos. 

They had a wonderful time running laps of the school field. Some of the children managed over 100 laps! Everyone did their best and put so much effort into raising money for ACE.   

We would like to say a huge “thank you” to all the children. Your efforts were awesome! Also, thank you to the Headteacher and staff who supported the event and to the children’s families and friends who sponsored them.  

The money we received is so timely. It will go towards completing classroom no. 8 ready for use in January. It will enable Arise School to provide another 40 children with the chance of an education.
