16th – 20th August 2020
Brinkley, a soft coated Wheaten Terrier and Eccles the Border Terrier, are leading a group of Wiltshire ‘oldies’ on their quest to walk to the White Horses of Wiltshire, supporting Hope for Tomorrow Global.
They are aiming to raise funds to give the gift of education to around 200 Burundian children, who are among the poorest of the poor, as part of its drive for positive change in Burundi; one of the poorest countries in the world.
Primary Education is free in Burundi, but children cannot attend school unless they have a school uniform, including shoes, plus books and stationery. Sometimes they even have to provide a chair or contribute towards other costs such as the teacher’s salary too. In the communities Hope for Tomorrow Global is working in, on average it costs around £20 to send each child to school. To find out more about giving the Gift of Education please click here.
We would be very grateful if you would support the ‘oldies’ by donating to the Brinkley and Eccles White Horse Challenge 2020.
Corona Virus Update: The organisers of this event have carried out a thorough risk assessment and will be following the latest Government guidelines in relation to social distancing and other Covid-19 safety measures.
