24 Hour Pinewood Challenge for Shonda

24 Hour Pinewood Challenge for Shonda

Why we need your help

To ensure that the first weekend of the summer term is still one to look forward to with great anticipation, we have decided to organise a whole school event whereby all children, from Nursery to Year 8, and as many staff as possible, will take part in a 24 Hour Pinewood Marathon Challenge that will not only test the endurance and stamina of the community, but will also hopefully be a fabulously unifying experience! The intention will be to run a course around the School as many times as possible, but most importantly without stopping for the full 24 hours. 


The challenge will start at 11.00am on Friday 23rd April and will come to its conclusion at 11.00am on Saturday 24th April. Throughout the evening and early morning, boarders will clearly be involved in completing shifts, but they will be joined by our keen and enthusiastic staff. It will be a relay event and children will always run in small groups rather than individually. Staff will be present at all times and there will be a continuous supply of sugary sustenance to keep everyone going!


To make this significant challenge more worthwhile, we have decided to raise funds for St John’s First the Baptist School in Shonda. Shonda is a very small and impoverished village just south of Mombasa in Kenya, right on the Indian ocean. Over the years, Pinewood has supported many initiatives for the school but, on this occasion, we would like to assist with the significant requirement for books - reading books, exercise books and teaching materials.


Our initial fundraising target is £4,000 but every contribution, regardless of how large or small, will go such a long way to ensuring the children of St. John’s First the Baptist School have the necessary resources to further their education. Thank you.
