CHS Students Take Positive Action to help Bomb Victims

On Sunday 4th June, three Year 12 Congleton High School students, Eloise, Summer and Holly, joined friends, Kayleigh and Chloe, to make the daunting 23 mile walk from Congleton to Manchester Children's Hospital to raise money for all those affected by the attack at the Manchester Arena following the Ariana Grande concert.  

Accompanied by Eloise's mum in the support vehicle, they set off from Tesco on Barn Road in Congleton at 8:00am and finally arrived at their destination at 5:00pm, where they were met by the manager of the Manchester Children's hospital. With only two breaks along the way, the girls spoke of how their journey had been:
"The last few miles after our second stop were definitely the most difficult but we are really proud of ourselves".

They worked hard to organise the walk and raised awareness and support by appearing on Heart FM, BBC Manchester, Signal 1 and Silk FM. The team of five raised an amazing amount of money for the victims and their families.

Eloise spoke to the Congleton Chronicle after the walk, explaining what had led to their decision to take on the task:
"It is unimaginable what the families and victims are going through. We want to give those involved something back for their bravery."

Eloise has set up a Just Giving page for anyone wishing to contribute https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/eloise-dale and the total sponsorship raised to date is over £1,100.

Well done to all those involved!
