After a visit from Fr David Smith about the Muhoroni project, Beatrice Morrell (Y6 pupil at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Primary School, Penshaw) was so inspired to help that she completed a sponsored swim to raise funds for the project. The swim was 13k, the length of Lake Naivasha, the nearest lake to Muhuroni.

Fr David returned to school to present Beatrice with a certificate and accept the £800 she raised. Beatrice and her mum are pictured with Fr David and Mrs Claire Garbutt, Head Teacher.

Our Lady Queen of Peace is a member of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust (BWCET). You can find out more the trust through their website by clicking here.
