Marabou Stork

Marabou Stork

This Marabou Stork is saying, “AREP’s Big Give Christmas Challenge target has been reached!”
Thank-you on behalf of the children to everyone for your generosity.
You can still donate but your donation won’t be matched.
www.thebiggive.org.uk and search for AREP

PS The Marabou Stork (Leptoptilos crumenifer) is one of the ugliest birds, but it is a magnificent flyer. Its wingspan can reach 7 feet. This one was catching thermals above Kampala last week.

Publicity about AREP trip to Uganda

The St Helens Star publicised the 2015 AREP trip to Uganda.  Well done to Erin and friends and your Head of Year for enthusing students in Year 8 at Rainford High.

As a result of this article, Wish FM called and sent a reporter round.

Schools can play a huge part in raising awareness for charities working locally and in other countries.  If anyone would like our more detailed pack of information about any of the sponsored children, or what we’re hoping to achieve during the trip, please get in touch.
