Freddie walks 20,000 steps to raise funds for families at our school

Wednesday 11 November, 2020

When Marcus Rashford led the campaign to get the Government to continue feeding hungry children over the half-term holidays, it inspired Freddie to help raise some money to help CompassPoint families have access to meals during this difficult time.

Freddie decided he wanted to raise £100 and would do this be completing 20,000 steps in less than a week. 

“I’m raising the money for people who don’t really have that much food,” said Freddie. “I get a bit out of breath.”

Compass Point’s headteacher Linda Brown said Freddie was ‘a real credit to the young people of Bristol’.

“He is great, he’s just a really good example of what young people are like - he’s lovely, caring and always thinking of others and how he can help,” she said.

“It was Freddie who decided he wanted to make bird boxes to put in the park, and he just did it. He likes to think of others all the time. We’re lucky we’ve got lots of great children at the school, and Freddie is a real credit to the young people of Bristol,” she added.

Freddie has raised over £500 so far.  Amazing.  If you would like to donate click on the JustGiving page
