Derek visits Heath School in support of 1 GOAL to get every child into school

22 Jul 2010

Derek visited the Heath School in Runcorn last Friday to hear from pupils supporting 1 GOAL.

They have signed up to a campaign running in over a hundred countries and supported by famous footballers, including David James, Peter Crouch and Michael Owen. It uses the power of football to ensure that education for all is the lasting impact of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Pupils have been invited to show their support for 1 GOAL - SEND MY FRIEND TO SCHOOL, by creating and signing giant supporters' scarves to send to the Prime Minister ahead of the UN Millennium Development Talks in September, to remind him and other world leaders of their promise to make sure that all children have a primary education by 2015.
