It includes a special ‘Walk to School Week’ too, from the 21st May, when thousands of teachers and children will celebrate the benefits of walking to school. For those children who live close enough to join in, it can be great fun to walk with your friends rather than travelling by car! But what would you do if your school is further away? How far would you be prepared to walk? And what if it wasn’t school you had to walk to reach – but water? (more…)

Vikki is 12 and has been bullied. She’s lost her confidence, won’t speak up in class and is frightened of meeting new people. Dan is 19: he found school difficult, has no qualifications and can’t find work - he’s struggling to prove to any potential employer that he can be reliable, work in a team or take on responsibility. And Amy is 16 and helps look after a sister with a serious medical condition which means she won’t live to be an adult – Amy feels isolated from her friends and although she’s worried about her exams she hasn’t said anything at home as she thinks her mum has enough to cope with already.
Sail training with Ocean Youth Trust South could be the opportunity of a lifetime for Vikki, Dan and Amy, helping each of them to a brighter future. (more…)

If this is also your birthday, perhaps you’d like to support Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity with your Little Sharers party? Sickle cell is an inherited blood disorder which affects the red blood cells. The cells become misshapen, and because of their sickle shape, they can’t squeeze through small blood vessels as easily as normal cells. Blood vessels then get blocked, stopping oxygen getting to where it is needed. It can cause severe pain, organ damage and stroke. (more…)
