BBC Young Unsung Hero Award

1895-1896-A-NFSSAT25

We are extremely proud of Georgia L (Year 6), who has been nominated for the BBC Young Unsung Hero Award 2020.

Georgia was nominated by the charity Restless Development after cycling (and running) tirelessly throughout the summer to complete all six distance challenges in the #trithisathome Challenge that replaced the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon, that normally takes place at Marlborough College in the Summer Term.

She completed a total distance of 251.90km and has worked so hard to raise £345 to date. Georgia was really happy to hear that the money she has raised so far has enabled a young woman from a community in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania to make 1890 face masks for her community and help protect thousands of people from Covid-19.

Restless Development also interviewed Georgia back in August for International Youth Day. In the interview, she talked about the challenges she undertook to raise money for the charity and her motivation.

Georgia’s fundraising page is still open, so if anyone would like to make a donation and help Georgia raise more money towards the continuous work the charity do, please go to: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/georgia-lovett3
