The main purpose of Bay to Hay is to help the United Nations to achieve
Global Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote
lifelong learning opportunities for all. We aim to do this by raising awareness
of the Send My Friend to School campaigns, both within our schools and
across the UK.
In addition to raising awareness of the work of Send My Friend to School, we
hope to raise funds for their partner charities and a smaller charity named
Cariad Cymru, which provides education, welfare and justice to neglected
children in Kenya. We will do this through an online fundraising page which
will be advertised with all press announcements about the project.
We have been very fortunate to receive the support of the Hay Festival from
the outset of this project, and are excited about the culmination of the project
when pupils from each of our schools gather at the Festival Schools Day on
Thursday 24th May.
