Sponsored Child

Sponsored child 2

Since 2012 the children of Holbeach have been raising money to sponsor a little girl in Africa. The decision to do this was made by the school council who then researched the alternative charities that offer this kind of services. In the end they agreed to use an organisation called ‘Plan’, who arranged for us to sponsor Liliane Madam and her family.

So far, the children have raised money for Liliane through cake sales, football tournaments, raffles and much more. If you have any ideas for how they can raise more money speak to your school council representative today!
