Manor Park pupils raised more than £4,500 for a humanitarian aid group with a 10-mile walk.

The children from Little Ilford School were hiking for Forest Gate-based charity Abdullah Aid.

Thanks to 19 selfless students’ walk from their school gates in Rectory Road to the Houses of Parliament, the charity can put the £4,617.17 in donations towards relief supplies for Syrian refugees.

“I don’t really think they realise the importance of it but we assure them that the hard work will make a huge difference to many needy people and children who have fled the ongoing crisis in Syria,” said CEO Shakil Malji.

“We thank the students the parents and all those who donated, we also thank the teachers and staff for allowing the students to be part of such a great cause and achievement.”

The walk took place on Saturday, June 18.
