Primary School Student Raises £600 in Sponsored Walk

children-28770_960_720A year three student from Eastbrook Primary Academy in Southwick has raised over £600 for their indoor swimming pool after discovering that her school was having trouble finding the funds.

It is not often that you encounter a seven-year-old with a determination to make a difference, but that is what Kayleigh Jukes set out to do.

A Good Old Fundraiser

Seven-year-old Kayleigh decided it was time to make an effort once she discovered that the school was struggling to maintain their indoor swimming pool and took to the Devil’s Dyke for a sponsored walk. She completed the full three-mile walk with her father and the family dog; Ollie.

The walk was sponsored by family members, friends and staff members and has kick-started a new effort into making more long-term improvements on the school. Eastbrook Primary School is now looking into other ways of gathering funding, with a long-term goal of replacing the swimming pool roof.
