Help our class raise money for Barnardos

Our class is raising money to support Barnardos so that we can help kids who have had a rough start to life.


We are a class of year 7 students in Christchurch, New Zealand. We have volunteered to take part in the Student Volunteer Army (SVA) project and have created a plan to raise money for Barnardos, a NZ wide charity.

The Student Volunteer Army started in 2010 when a big earthquake hit Ōtautahi Christchurch. Sam Johnson (a University student) thought that there might be something helpful that a bunch of students could do, whilst the University was closed. He set up a Facebook page and invited friends from Uni to jump on board. That's how the SVA was born. Over the years many people have joined to help out with different sorts of surprises that have hit Christchurch, including COVID-19. Our class are going to help out the Student Volunteer Army by raising money for Barnardos Charity.

Barnardos helps kids who have had a rough start to life (such as violence at home). So to help those kids we are going to walk from Scarborough to Taylors Mistake then around the Godley Loop Track and back again to raise money. We will get sponsors and they will pay us for every km we do. The money we raise will go to anything Barnardos needs to help the kids, especially their programme called 'Footsteps to Feeling Safe'. We also plan to hold a sausage sizzle and a bake sale to raise money. We aim to raise at least $700.

All money donated through this Givealittle page goes directly to Barnardos.

A very generous grandfather from our school donated $200 cash which we are now paying into our Givealittle page. We don’t know who he is, but 7G are very grateful and can’t thank him enough.
