Three Peaks for Panu!

About the group

Earlier this summer one of us volunteered in a charity summer school in Romania. We're hoping to raise money for the summer school by climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

Fundraising for The Life Foundation

The Life Foundation is a 100% non-profit organisation that works with disadvantaged children and adults all over the world as a part of a variety of different projects.

The one we volunteered at was in a rural village just outside of Bacau, Romania. Due to the poverty in the area, the kids here often left school early to work on family farms and many were married with there own children when they were still in their teens. Alongside Romanian charity FSC, we ran a summer school that tried to show the importance of education and encourage the kids to stay in or go back to school whilst also letting just have fun being kids for a week.

All the money raised goes towards resources for the children and activities, including paints, paper, sport equipment, food and drink.
