Two students at St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Rickmansworth are walking 100km each during lent to raise money for a local charity, Small Acts of Kindness.
The charity helps to reduce loneliness and isolation for older people across Hertfordshire.
They have reached over 16,500 people over winter and seek to connect communities with kindness.
St Mary’s School Head Boy Jack and Head Girl Emily said: “We have decided to set ourselves a challenge to do some fundraising for Small Acts of Kindness. We are trying to raise as much money as we can for this charity because they do such great work! We would really appreciate your support.”
Lynne Misner, CEO of Small Acts of Kindness said: “Jack and Emily are an inspiration. Every step that they are taking with this challenge is an act of kindness. The support that they have gained and the donations that have been made will mean that some of the most vulnerable older people in our community will be warmer in their homes and feel less lonely and isolated.
“We wish them every success and extend a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make this challenge happen and supported it.”
