LEAP provides an excellent education to disadvantaged young people in six extraordinary High Schools in South Africa and for a number of years Millfield Library has had a special relationship which has involved the donation of books, visits by Millfield teachers to the school and fundraising.
All our efforts are met with overwhelming gratitude, enthusiasm and a great outpouring of love.
Imaginative ways of raising funds have been devised by Mr Trevis. These have included everything from small cash donations after “Library Talks”, selling ice-creams during breaks and the very popular Xbox FIFA tournament. The funds sent to LEAP have amounted to £320 which will be doubled to over £600 by an investment company which has pledged to match any support. This amount is a “fair fortune” to the LEAP organisation. A vote of thanks must go to all those who have donated.
Mr Trevis continues untiringly to find ingenious ways of raising more funds and there are further plans to strengthen our relationship with LEAP so watch this space! For further information open this link The LEAP organisation
