Rainbow mufti day for Farlington Prep School

June 22, 2017

Farlington Prep School took part in a “Rainbow Mufti Day” to raise funds for the BIG Foundation – an education charity based in Kenya. This was selected by the pupils’ School Council as the recipient of this year’s fundraising activities

The pupils from Nursery to Prep 6 came to School wearing a specified colour of the rainbow, depending on their year group. A group was then photographed in the shape of a rainbow from upstairs in the Boarding House.

The Big Foundation undertakes projects in schools in Kenya building new classrooms, providing desks and helping feed children their lunch.  Community projects are also undertaken to help keep livestock healthy, cultivate crops and support local cottage industries, such as jewellery making. The charity has been set up by Beth Richardson, a Farlington parent.

Beth Richardson has set herself the challenge of climbing Mount Kenya next spring, together with her daughters and husband. They are training in the holidays by taking on Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

Farlington Prep School is very proud to support this charity and is grateful to Mrs Richardson for delivering a very thought-provoking assembly to the Prep School girls about the charitable work the organisation is undertaking in Africa.
