2018 Walk for Sean
“The UK and Africa came together on Sunday 8th July to mark the 25 years Anniversary since the Sean Devereux Children’s Fund was set up following the tragic death of Sean in 1993.
Approximately 150 hardy walkers completed the 5k course in sweltering heat in Yateley, and over 300 students, parents and teachers from the Sean Devereux School in Liberia did the same, joined by the desire to make a difference to the children of Liberia – providing them with an education in Sean’s name. Photographs of the efforts were shared at the time across the continents and there was a great feeling of togetherness and unity of purpose. The objective this year was to build up the Library at the school with books, desks and tables along with a TV so that the children can see news of the wider world. In addition we hope to develop a science laboratory too as there is a real need for this to help broaden the depth of such lessons. We have raised £9,000 to date in the UK and amazingly 250 US dollars was raised in Liberia through the activities and donations going on there. Maureen Devereux – Patron of the Fund said “ I would like to thank everyone who took part in this amazing event both here and in Liberia. Sean would have loved to see such harmony and unity and it is great that we are able to help the less fortunate and vulnerable in this way.”
We were also fortunate to have received outstanding support from local businesses in Yateley and Farnborough this year. Many have pledged money to support the fund and we are very appreciative of their kindness and help. It truly has been a team effort.”
