Malvern Editorial 6th Apr, 2017

STUDENTS and staff from a Worcester school tackled a seven-mile walk across the Malvern Hills to raise money for a women’s asylum seeker shelter.

On Saturday (April 1) 34 pupils and five staff from Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College, as well as one parent, one grandparent and five dogs completed the sponsored walk.

The walk was organised by the schools Junior St Vincent de Paul Society who are raising money for Fatima House in Birmingham, a women’s asylum seeker shelter for those who have nowhere else to go.

From the money raised by the sponsored walk and events throughout the past year, the pupils are hoping to hand over a cheque for £1000 to the shelter later this month.
