Students keep quiet to help disadvantaged children
Students at Crescent School in Rugby have raised money to help disadvantaged children overseas.
They took part in a number of fundraising events including a sponsored silence and raised £1,274.73.
Dunchurch couple Sue and Tony Melia, of Bwengu Projects, said every penny will go towards good work in Malawi.
Class IV chose to pay the salary of a needlework teacher and food for orphans at the seven feeding stations in the Bwengu area.
Children have studied the area as their Geography topic, comparing a location very different to their own.
Mr and Mrs Melia said: “It is amazing what a small school has achieved.”
Since 2006, the couple have spent months each summer working in Bwengu, project-managing its wholsesale transformation.
