Wow thank you so much to all the children at English Martyrs Primary School Reading for walking a total of 680 miles for the Share the Journey campaign. What fantastic amount!
Linda Heneghan our school volunteer for the Reading Area told us about the walk . “It was absolutely joyous 412 children, 28 adults. and Francesca (the CAFOD puppet) walked around the school perimeter which is about half a mile. The younger children did one lap and older ones did more. Some of the Year 6 children walked all afternoon so they must have covered about 5 miles! Luckily they enjoyed a “shower” as they passed by the Early Years classroom to cool them down. One of the staff had made a brilliant Share the Journey banner and fortunately the weather was cloudy so not too hot.”
Thank you so much to all the children and staff for taking part in a Share the Journey walk and showing your care and concern for the plight of refugees and migrants. We have now walked an amazing 78,654 miles which is 3 times around the world so we are going for the fourth .
You can help reach that target by joining a Share the Journey walk around Prospect Park Reading on Sunday 22nd July meet at English Martyrs’ Church RG30 2EB at 2:30pm. Or there is a Share the Journey walk on Saturday 21st July from Sacred Heart Church Fareham PO16 0NQ at 10:15am.
