Well done to boys and parents alike for turning out in such high numbers for this year's hike around the Queen's Back Garden! The sunniest of walks was the perfect antidote to the longest of winters. Please click here if you would still like to donate.

The premise of ‘Railway Children’ is a simple one – in India, thousands of homeless children arrive at
train stations every day. The charity attempts to get to these children before
those peddling drugs, or worse, are able to do so. They then provide shelter
and protection for the children, and try to reunite them with their families if
appropriate to do so.
We have set ourselves a specific target of £13,700 to
raise as a school so that Railway Children’s shelter in Salem in southern India
can stay open for another year – nearly 900 children’s lives could be affected
by our Sponsored Walk. It is certainly a charity that Papplewick boys felt they could relate directly to when they heard about it at a presentation at the end of the Lent term. www.railwaychildren.org.uk
