Jade Clark, a student from Sharnbrook Upper School and Sixth Form, had to create a Social Action project for her Media course on a charity that she supports. We are proud to say Jade chose AnnaKennedyonline. She had attended one of our charity events with her father Richard which was our very first Charity Football Match organised by our Charity Champion Nicki Rodriguez. Jade wanted to create a short video to help our charity raise funds to enable us to continue supporting families and to raise more awareness. Thank you, Jade.
