100 Miles for Malawi
While many teachers couldn't wait to put their feet up for a well-deserved few weeks rest over the summer holidays, Andrew Fisher, previous Head of Frensham Heights and patron of Malawi Schools Trust packed his rucksack and walked 100 miles across the South Downs to raise money for the teachers housing in Malawi.
"It always strikes me that huge numbers of Malawian children walk 20 km to and from school everyday. If I can raise some funds for our educational change by walking it recognises their efforts too."
8 days after he started, Andrew completed his walk on July 17th, raising £2500 in the process and the teacher's housing in Malawi has now been completed.
“This last day was super hard, much more than expected - 25km in the heat. I think I will have raised £2000, so really pleased with the the support - thanks to everyone who has donated and sent encouraging messages”
Andrew added loads of photos and day by day commentary on his Instagram, and if you would like to add to the £2500 total, there’ still time via his Just Giving page and support the next phase of development in Malawi.
