Swimming to make a difference
Determined to make a difference, ardent student Leah has raised over £500 through her own fundraising efforts in support of the Australian Koala Foundation’s work following the devastating bushfires in Australia.
Leah has planned and organised numerous fundraising initiatives, including a sponsored swim at the Magnet Leisure Centre, Maidenhead, on Friday 24 January in which she swam an impressive 100 lengths of the pool in just under an hour and a half. Leah received donations in excess of £500 and further cake and doughnut sales see the total money raised continue to grow.
Stephanie Rogers, Head of Sixth Form, praised Leah for her efforts: “As Leah is aware, the money is important to the charity but just as important, she has developed an understanding of the need to be proactive and hard-working to see service centred ideas come to fruition.”
