BADMINTON JUNIOR SCHOOL RAISES �750 TO SEND A COW TO AFRICA

Published Friday 20th of January 2012 04:11:24 PM

Badminton Junior School has raised �750 for Send a Cow - a charity which works hand in hand with poor families in Africa, teaching them the skills they need to build new lives free from poverty and hunger. The money was raised through parental donations and by the sale of toys and books at the school�s St Nicholas Fair.

Send a Cow works in rural African communities, providing training, livestock, seeds and support. The charity doesn�t offer quick fix solutions, instead works with African families over a five year period to try and restore hope and create stronger communities for the future. The money raised by Badminton Junior School will be used to buy a top quality dairy cow for a family � a small gift, but one which can effect substantial sustainable change. As well as providing families with a regular supply of milk, calves born from this cow will be passed on to another family and skills will be shared with others to help them also move above the poverty line.

Said Head of Badminton Junior School, Emma Davies: �Our children were very interested in Send a Cow�s charity work and really wanted to raise enough money to send a whole cow to Africa as they could see how much difference it really would make. The assembly run by David Turner from Send a Cow was wonderful and really spurred the children on to raise a significant sum of money.�
