Life Education Wessex is becoming our charity of the year!
After careful consideration we are delighted to confirm Life Education Wessex as our charity of the year 2016.
Life Education Wessex is an independent and self-financing charity that delivers age-appropriate health and drug prevention education programmes to children aged 3 – 13 years with the aim of providing children with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to make healthy choices and avoid risky behaviours. They educate over 52,000 children every year in their purpose-built mobile classrooms with specially trained Educators and Harold the Giraffe puppet, who is adored by the children. Harold helps teach children about the wonders of the body, the importance of a healthy diet and exercise and also about the damage that can be done to the body through the use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco and substances. Children also learn strategies to cope with bullying and peer group pressure so as to be able to avoid becoming involved in risky behaviours.
The Commercial Law Practice is working closely with the fundraising team at Life Education Wessex in order to sponsor the valuable work the team undertakes.
