Helen was invited to talk to children at Marwood and Hutton Rudby Primary Schools. She was asked to demonstrate to the children how lucky they are to be in receipt of a good education. Helen showed photos of Roseberry School, Darjeeling and talked about a typical day in the life of one of its pupils, including the early morning walk up the road to fetch water for washing and cooking. The children were fascinated by the stories and are keen to do something to help.
