The Manorfield Charitable Foundation work in partnership with Manorfield Primary School, a large primary school in Tower Hamlets, east London.
The school is in one of the most deprived parts of the country and serves an underprivileged community.
We want to give the children and families we work with the very best start in life. We believe that, despite the huge barriers many of our children face, we will not use these as excuses, but will find ways to overcome these barriers and enable the children to achieve both academically and in all they do.
In 2018, 2019 and 2020, over 600 runners have completed the Big Half half marathon for Team Manorfield raising over £100,000 towards the building of a new Nursery, outdoor learning areas for our 2, 3 & 4 year olds and completing our new Art Studio and Teaching Kitchen.
Having seen the huge impact our previous fundraising has had, we are now planning to enhance the school further to allow children to access further outstanding learning experiences by creating outdoor learning areas for our 5 & 6 year olds, an outdoor art area and an outdoor cooking area.
These projects will cost over £100,000 and all funds raised by our Big Half 2021 runners will go directly towards this.
