Here at Worktop Express® we’re always keen to support local initiatives, particularly if these are charitable; so when we heard about the great fundraising project the Year 8s at Stroud Girls High were undertaking in conjunction with Giving Nation, we had to lend a hand!
Giving Nation is a brilliant organisation dedicated to inspiring young people to give, and providing support for their charitable activities. One of their latest ‘challenges’ has been directed toward Year 7, 8 and 9 students, urging these year groups to pick a charity and raise as much money as possible. To get them started, Giving Nation has given a generous deposit and the class that raises the most money gets an exciting reward – a trip to India!
The girls of Year 8 at Stroud Girls High have launched themselves into the project with gusto, choosing Winston’s Wish as their charity and kicking off with a series of carwashes to bolster their charitable coffers. It was excellent timing for us – it had been a hard week of deliveries for our fleet and Worktop Express® vans definitely needed a good scrub! – so we decided to invite the Year 8s down to wash our vans. We provided the vans, materials (sponges galore!) and provisions (yummy hot chocolate and doughnuts) and the girls provided the elbow grease.
It was a very successful day – and we all had a lot of fun, too. Well done, girls, and keep up the good work!
