A group of pupils from a Snaresbrook school walked around every stop on the Monopoly board to raise money for charity.

Forest School students Angharad Stables, Kaia Michel, Ava Canteenwala, Zaynah Islam and Yasmin Herron-Isa and teacher Martin Bassett-Jones completed a 25km walk from Old Kent Road all the way to Mayfair and raised more than £1,000 for charity Wings of Hope (WOHAA).

The 13 and 14 year-olds make up the We Are Action team, and spent the whole of Tuesday, April 10 walking across the capital to tick off every place on the famous boardgame.

WOHAA is an education focused charity that provides free education to children orphaned and/or living in poverty. They are currently helping over 1,000 children in Malawi and India in various projects.

The charity requires donations to continue to house students, feed them, update their academic supplies and employ temporary young graduate teachers.
