Megan, who visited Happy House this summer and and fell in love with our kids , swam 500 laps of her school pool over three days last week.
And Megan, a student at Cheltenham Ladies College, smashed her target of raising 7000 euro for Happy House through sponsorship from generous family and friends.
" I was inspired by the incredible work being done to give these children a better future. I feel that I would be extremely passionate about being able to contribute to raising funds in order to build the classrooms that are so desperately needed for the secondary school students..
I go to The Cheltenham Ladies College where from the start of our academic career there is a great emphasis on helping those less fortunate through specific house or even school-wide projects which help raise money and awareness whilst perhaps also inspiring others to get involved in the cause."
Megan's donation will enable us to go ahead with Mama Sue's revised plan of building four new classrooms instead of the two we had originally planned - which will give us a room for each class, plus some additional space for use for specialist groups or subjects.
Megan's efforts are amazing and we are truly grateful to her and all those who sponsored her and to Cheltenham Ladies College.
