School Trip Inspires Student Fundraising

A school trip to Sutton Life Centre inspired Year 6 pupil, Lily, to organise a fundraising campaign for Water Aid. Lily, a pupil at Greenacre School for Girls in Banstead, was surprised to learn that only one per cent of the earth’s water is available for human use and that clean water is scarce in many parts of the world.

Single-handedly, she planned and organised a Bottle It campaign in Greenacre’s Junior Department, with each class undertaking to fill a drinking bottle with loose change, raising nearly £300. Lily said, “I am thrilled with the amount of money we have raised; I never expected to raise this much! Water Aid is an amazing charity and I’m glad I could help them.”
