Outreach at Bedales and beyond

Outreach is an important part of life, both at Bedales and for OBs. Over the last year students have helped many charities, including Tools for Self Reliance, Stonepillow and schools in Swaziland. Watch a new Bedales Outreach film. Beyond Bedales, Poppy Wetherill (OB) who works for the British Red Cross is looking for people to sign up to either a breath taking cycle ride from Vietnam to Cambodia or a beautiful trek up Mount Kilimanjaro to raise vital funds for those who need it most. For more information, please email pwetherill@redcross.org.uk or visit the British Red Cross website. Olivia Yetman (OB) is also doing her bit for charity. Prior to veterinary training, Olivia is off to Okonjima in Namibia next month as part of her gap year to work with leopards, cheetahs and other Namibian wildlife at the Africat Foundation for five months. If you would like to find out more about her adventures, she is writing a blog about her visit.
