The Wings of Hope is a London based charity, providing education and support for underprivileged children around the world. The charity runs a national social enterprise competition – The Wings of Hope Achievements Awards – which encourages students to build skills and confidence through running their own fundraising projects raising money to help provide free education for underprivileged children in India and Malawi.
Our Dulwich College Wings of Hope team, enDuranCe, took part in the semi-finals at the House of Lords on Thursday 9 May following their spectacular efforts to raise nearly £2400 for the educational charity last term. The Year 9 team of Emin Huseynbayov, Max Meyohas, Jai Singh Yao and Dan Pinkney cycled as a team for 12 hours non-stop on fixed bikes outside the DC Sports Centre on Saturday 23 March. At the semi-finals they gave a presentation on their fundraising efforts to a panel of politicans and business leaders, and explained what they had learned from the process. Team enDuranCe will now go to the WOHAA Finals on Wednesday 26 June to see if they have won a prize in one of the categories.
