BEYOND CRANLEIGH WHOLE SCHOOL WALK TO BUILD A BAKERY PROJECT: SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 20TH 2015

Join Cranleigh’s special walk for Kawama, our partnership community in Zambia, and help us to raise enough money to set up a bakery franchise. Kawama, a district of Kitwe, is the home of Kawama School, part of the Cranleigh family of schools. This social enterprise project, like last year’s Kawama Krafts, will help to provide jobs and skills training for local people when they leave education.

This 35 kilometre sponsored walk through the beautiful Surrey Hills will mark the start of Cranleigh’s 150th anniversary celebrations and we’d like as many pupils, families and Old Cranleighans as possible to join us on the journey.

Circular walk from School via Peaslake, St Martha’s and Chinthurst.

Staggered start times to accommodate all walking speeds:

08:00 Slow walkers

09:00 Normal walkers

10:00 Fast walkers

13:00 Runners

Those with younger children or less able walkers will be able to join the route at a later stage, please register for details. A BBQ lunch is being provided on the full route.

To register for the walk please e-mail

sponsoredwalk@cranleigh.org

Further details will be provided on registration.

THE KAWAMA BAKERY PROJECT

There are around 30,000 people living in Kawama and unemployment runs at around 75%, so it is vital that social enterprises are sustainable, helping to provide jobs, skills and opportunities for the community. The bakery project, like Kawama Krafts, will allow a number of families to have a sustainable income.

The money you raise on the walk will help us to work with individuals to purchase fuel efficient stoves with cooking and proving ovens that allow family businesses to make and sell enough loaves every day to provide an income for their families. The funds will cover the purchase of the initial equipment, training, and ongoing support for those involved.
