The Walk for Love event was a great success!

Friday 26 May, the day of the SPW ‘Walk for Love’ event, dawned. The sun shine bright as child after child, staff member after staff member and parent after parent walked through the school gates proudly sporting a Walk for Love T-shirt. What an incredible sight. Brightness however, was not restricted just to our pink t-shirts. Instead, brightness shone from faces everywhere you looked. Awareness that this was the day SPW walked to make a difference was apparent wherever you looked and to whomever you spoke.

Gathering together, the entire SPW school community, led by the SRC team, left the school grounds beginning the walk around the streets of Glenelg. Younger and older children walked side by side and hand in hand; children, staff and parents walked united. Smiles abounded, laughter rang out and the happiness was contagious. Children proudly carried banners and spoke with passers-by about the work of the SRC and the work of the Mary Potter Foundation.

Our Service is Making a Difference
The SPW ‘Walk for Love’ event created a huge buzz and a real impact on our community. Not only did children, staff and parents walk the walk but they also talked the talk with t-shirt sales and donations totalling an incredible $7143. This amazing amount of money will directly benefit those receiving care in the Mary Potter Hospice; an achievement of which the SRC and SPW community can feel rightly proud.

The ‘Walk for Love’ event was featured in the local CoastCity Weekly paper.

The SRC Says Thank You
The SRC would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who took part in our event by walking and donating. Working together, we have raised a truly AWESOME amount.
