Eco-Minded Young Meadite’s Fundraising Challenge

One of our Kindergarten pupils has raised an amazing £365 for the Marine Conservation Society and helped to clean up local green spaces during lockdown by picking up litter.

The three year old Meadite is very passionate about nature and helping the planet and had noticed lots of rubbish in his local park and woods whilst on his daily walks with his parents.

The eco-minded pupil told his mum he wanted to do his bit to “save the turtles and whales from eating plastic” by taking part in a litter-picker challenge.

His mum set up a Just Giving page for him and the thoughtful Kindergartener set about picking up litter every day. He has raised £365 so far for the Marine Conservation Society and has received a personal letter of thanks and certificate from them.

He says he is missing his friends from school and teacher Mrs Ovenden lots and can’t wait to see them all again and tell them about his adventures.

Headmaster Mr Webster said: “This is an amazing effort. It’s so wonderful to see another example of our pupils using this time to do something to help. Well done!”
