« Courir pour la rivière » au marathon de Londres!

Professeur local, Karen Cendre, participe cette année au marathon de Londres en soutien à Our Finest Dour, collecter des fonds pour nous aider à poursuivre nos nettoyages de rivières et nos activités environnementales et éducatives.

Karen enseigne la géographie à la Dover Girls Grammar School depuis 9 années, and taking year groups to the river Dour which runs through Dover. This river is one of only a handful of chalk streams left in the world. It forms a rare habitat for many flora & fauna in the local area but is under threat from many areas such as pollution, litter, and construction.

‘Our Finest Dour’ is a charity organisation that aims to raise awareness about this 4mile river. Not only to train volunteers & organise clean up groups, but also engage with childrens groups to educate them on the wildlife the river supports, and how it can be sustainably managed. Running the London Marathon this year and with their local running club JellylegsDeal it will enable the support of a local cause & give something back to the River Dour after many years of greatly enjoying traveling its length with my students.

Crowd funding is available ici to support ‘Running for the River’. More information about the local wildlife and White Cliffs Countryside partnership at https://www.whitecliffscountryside.org.uk/
