Go-Givers is a national programme for primary schools led by the Citizenship Foundation, an independent educational charity. The ‘Make A difference challenge’, which is supported by the Norfolk Community Foundation and its donors was launched in Great Yarmouth last year and hopes to run across the county in 2015, and is looking for funding to enable it to continue.
At April’s event which was held at King’s Lynn Town hall, children from West Norfolk showcased their efforts to bring about change by highlighting causes they believe in. Each group was presented with a certificate by Elizabeth Watson, Mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
Topics under discussion included endangered orangutans, tackling speeding traffic and child health. The programme helps children to think about local and global issues, develop a sense of community and grow the philanthropists of the future.
