Solar lights sold
Posted on 31 October 2012
Earlier this month, a rather special, community-led event took place in a rural town in northern Holland. Over 200 students from Hilversum International School together with 50 volunteers, walked 10km around Hilversum, raising funds and awareness for a greener planet.
The sponsored walk was in support of SolarAid and Energy for Change Foundation (established by SolarAid star Rick de Gaay Fortman) and raised a fantastic 7,000 Euros.
Check out some photos from the day below.
From all of us at SolarAid, we'd like to say a big THANK YOU to our Dutch friends.
If you'd like to organise your own sponsored walk, wherever you are in the world, to help us get closer to our big goal, we'd love to hear from you. Simply get in touch via email@example.com with 'sunny stride' in the title.
