As a form we have decided to partake in the CAFOD walk for water challenge. During the period of lent we have decided to walk 70,000 steps a day collectively (along with Mrs Meakin and Miss Singleton) in order to raise money for the challenge. This may sound easy but as many of you may know, lockdown means that we are doing much less exercise than normal so finding the motivation to go out on a walk or run is proving to be quite difficult.

You may be wondering why we are doing this? Well, CAFOD has set up this challenge so that they can provide clean water for those who need it the most. Many children in countries such as Ethiopia are forced to walk for hours each day to provide water for their families which most of the time will make them very ill.
