Manorfield runs the Big Half - Again!
The Manorfield Charitable Foundation work in partnership with Manorfield Primary School, a large primary school in Tower Hamlets, East London.
The school is in one of the most deprived parts of the country and serves an underprivileged community.
We want to give the children and families that we work with the very best start in life. We believe that, despite the huge barriers many of our children face, we will not use these as excuses, but will find ways to overcome these barriers and enable the children to achieve both academically and in all that they do.
In 2018 and 2019, over 450 runners have completed the 'Big Half' half marathon for Team Manorfield, raising over £80,000 towards the building of our much needed new Nursery, Art Studio and Cooking room. With the Nursery building now complete and the building works for the Art Studio and Cooking Room underway, our focus turns to enhancing the school further.
Having seen the huge impact our fundraising in 2018 & 2019 has had, we planned to enhance the school further to allow the children to access further outstanding learning experiences by completing the cooking room and enhancing our outdoor learning and sports facilities.
All funds raised by our Big Half 2020 runners went directly towards this...
Amazingly - We beat our target and managed to raise over £39000!!!
On behalf of all the children and our community THANK YOU to all that took part and for your wonderful generosity!
