"One mum in a family with three generations of Boltonian men said, 'You can't better this school - it's belting', and we are inclined to agree. "

Amy Runs and Cycles for LivLife

Tuesday, 08 July 2014

Year 7 pupil Amy Chicken has recently taken part in both the Junior Manchester Run in Heaton Park and the Great Manchester Cycle, which she did with her father.  Amy was keen to enter both events to raise money for LivLife, a charity she has become familiar with through Bolton School.  She also made extra money by selling bracelets she had made to her friends at school. Her Virgin Money Giving website, which is still collecting donations, can be found here; she has thus far raised £256.25. 

The School has worked with LivLife for a number of years and girls visit Tanzania, where it is based, every two years.  The charity was set up by Max Griffiths and Sam Yates, two former pupils of Bolton School, and it provides free and relevant education and vocational opportunities in Tanzania for children and adults. Working in one of the most poverty-stricken areas of the world, any funds raised help build long-term futures for whole communities.
