Ebola Appeal

Primary school children from five Liverpool schools took part in a charity run to help fight the spread of Ebola and raise funds for their partner schools in Waterloo, Sierra Leone, West Africa. The 360 pupils, from St Robert Bellarmine, All Saints, Rimrose Hope, St Monica’s and English Martyrs primary schools took part in the charity run at Silcox Park, Bootle to help raise money for the Ebola crisis. The aim of the run was to collectively run the distance between the two Waterloos, which are over 3,000 miles apart. Together, the children ran 9,000 laps around the park, while parents and teachers cheered them on. Headteacher of Rimrose Hope, Lawrence Crilly said: “It is not just the medical aid but the humanitarian aid and support that is needed. We are doing our bit to ease the difficulties right now, but it is going to take a long time to overcome this. We are so proud of our children for wanting to make a difference.”
