Queen Anne’s girls take part in charity Colour Run

Wednesday 23rd May 2018

Success, joy and elation for 3 Queen Anne’s girls as they take part in the, Windsor Colour Run, raising money for charity Clear Sky.

Thank you to proud mother, Mrs McLaughlin, for her words below.

It was all happening in Windsor last weekend, not only was it the location for the star studded royal wedding of Harry and Megan, but on Sunday Windsor also hosted the cool and crazy Colour Obstacle Rush in which three pupils from Queen Anne’s School took part to raise much needed funds for local children’s charity, Clear Sky.

Locals Abi M (4s), Minnie F (4s) and Isla C (4s) ran 5K and tackled 20 challenging and fun obstacles whilst being doused from head to toe with colourful paint and foam. In 22 degrees heat these determined girls ran, jumped, climbed and plummeted…but they picked each other up and in doing so raised over £1,000.

 

  

 

Abi, Minnie and Isla told the Henley Standard: “At Queen Anne’s we are taught that every child deserves to reach their potential – and to never give up. We felt the Colour Obstacle Rush was a really fun and playful way to raise money together to support Clear Sky, so they can help many more children when they need it the most.”

Clear Sky help children struggling with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties through Play & Creative Arts Therapy, an age appropriate approach that uses the language of PLAY to support children who have faced a number of challenges including bereavement, trauma, bullying, abuse and domestic violence.

Sophia Giblin, Founder and Clear Sky CEO said, “It’s so wonderful to see young people taking part in an event to raise money to help Clear Sky. The girls taking part have not only raised funds to help more children and young people who are struggling, but have also helped to raise awareness of mental health difficulties amongst their peers. The more that young people are able to understand and identify mental health, the closer they are to becoming part of the solution for generations to come.”

 

The girls’ Just Giving page remains open if you would like to show your support and to help Clear Sky reach their fundraising target:
