Thirteen Year 4’s and their parents took part in the 5th Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need on the 9th of October 2022.
They all walked ten kilometres around the beautiful Knepp Estate near Horsham, West Sussex. Along the route girls climbed treehouses, discovered bird hides, old windmills, historic churches used by the Knights Templar, and a family of wild pigs.
All the girls had a lovely time.
“Even though we walked over ten kilometres, it didn’t feel that long or tiring because we were with our friends,” explained Ellie.
“I felt so good when I found out that we raised £1,875 for Children in Need. Having tea and a play in the garden afterwards was a lot of fun!” added Sasha.
Head of Burgess Hill Girls Prep Heather Cavanagh could not be prouder of the students:
“At Burgess Hill Girls, physical exercise, supporting others and enjoying the great outdoors are just as important to us as working hard in the classroom. It is fantastic to see students and their families using their weekends to combine all these wonderful things in aid of Children in Need.”
