South-West schoolgirls to take on biggest UK charity walk
2:00pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
SCHOOLGIRLS in the South West are set to take part in one of the biggest UK charity walks ever attempted.
Somerset and Devon schools have signed-up to the World Wide Walk, covering routes across the country on International Day of the Girl, October 11.
Each girl will walk 10km, adding up to more than 40,000km, equivalent to the circumference of the globe.
Organisers hope to raise £250,000 through sponsorship to help girls access quality education, healthcare and prevent abuse such as early and forced marriage.
