Jaden’s Journey bids to raise £1,000 for school friends’ association

18th Mar

Jaden Stork, who attends Wawne Primary School, aims to raise money for FOWSA (Friends of Wawne Primary School) by conquering Ben Nevis at the end of May, accompanied by his father.
Jaden said: “I really want to help FOWSA – they do so much for all the children at my school and both my brother and I have loved their activities and events, which I hope will long continue. If I give a little something back and others can benefit it will make me really happy.
“On May 31 my dad and I will be taking on the challenge of climbing Ben Nevis and I’m hoping we can complete the task in about eight hours.
“I’ve been told that footwear and protective clothing are your best friend when attempting to reach the summit. I’m really grateful that Trespass Outlet in Princes Quay have provided me with warm weather clothing and some great walking shoes and I can’t wait to get there now!”
During the coming weeks Jaden and his school will be hosting fundraising activities at Princes Quay, and Jaden hopes the local community will get behind the “Jaden’s Journey” cause.
Sarah Smith, Princes Quay marketing and customer services manager, said: “It’s great to see an 11-year-old wanting to leave a legacy behind that other pupils can benefit from. Generally, organisations like this are solely run by volunteers and depend on monies raised to continue, and it’s a great opportunity for us to help in a small way.
“Local companies Hull Kingston Rovers, Village Hotel and Hull FC are also on board donating fundraising items, with local print company X3 limited providing branded T-shirts, which we’re really appreciative of.”
