Lendy Park High School Project, Marondera, Zimbabwe – Focus School, Dunstable Sponsored Run – 12th March 2016

The whole Lendy Park Committee and the children of Lendy Park would like to express our sincere, heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the money raised in the recent School sponsored run, held in Northampton.  We are quite simply amazed and lost for words at the commitment, enthusiasm and determination of every student and teacher to take part in the Run and give of their best to raise such a colossal amount of money through the support of family, friends and colleagues. The amount raised is slightly over £8000 which, incredibly, is way beyond the £5000 target that was set.This amount of money has great significance for us as, with the monies already raised, we are now within close reach of the £10,000 needed to pay the deposit and secure the land for the proposed Lendy Park School.We deeply appreciate this wonderful monetary gift and we are grateful, to every student and teacher that took part, not forgetting the fabulous cake stand that must have attracted many people to purchase a ‘Treat.’ Special thanks to the PE department , Debbie Clarke and members of the community for organising this great event so well and ensuring that everything was prepared and all knew what they were doing.  We are sure this contributed significantly to the success of the Run.

Through, Mrs Madiri we will of course keep the School informed of developments and the purchase of the land in particular.  As things move forward we will always look back with grateful thanks at the way Focus School enabled such a massive step forward to be made in this project.  What a great way to raise money through having fun, getting fit and beating a challenge.  Very well done everyone!!
