  Africa service
Bolton School Junior Girls’ teacher Mrs Julia Marsden travelled to Malawi to work with Retrak. This charity aims to support street children in Africa and South America through education, healthcare and shelter, and to reintegrate them with families and communities.
Mrs Marsden was invited to visit Malawi
with Retrak following the school’s dedicated fundraising throughout the 2016-17 school year. The girls then exceeded a further fundraising target of £1,850 to allow Mrs Marsden to make the trip: they raised £2,195.43 on House Day earlier this term and £1,106.21 on Charities Afternoon at the end of the summer term, along with additional fundraising from a sponsored trampolining session. Pupils at Hesketh House have raised over £5,300 in total for Retrak since they  rst got involved with the charity.
While in Malawi, Mrs Marsden worked with staff at Chisomo Children’s Centre and helped to create a new ‘Hesketh House Art Corner’ for the street children, which is named after the Bolton School Junior Girls’, Hesketh House.
