Honiton schoolgirl Faith Foster hopes to raise as much money as she can to help save the lives of children who do not have access to clean and safe drinking water.

A Honiton schoolgirl is lacing up her running shoes to help save the lives of children who do not have access to clean and safe drinking water.

Faith Foster will be doing a sponsored run around Honiton for WaterAid on Saturday (September 21) and wants to raise as much money as she can.

The 12-year-old Honiton Community College student was inspired to do her bit for the charity after watching Children in Need and says she wanted to do something to help.

She will be joined by Diddy, the mayor’s bear, for the mile-and-a-half route, which starts at the playing fields near Honiton Bottom Road.

“I’m looking forward to doing it,” says Faith. “I am doing this for the children in Africa and other countries who don’t have clean water to drink. If people donate it would really help save a life.”

She is no stranger to charity running and recently took part in a Race for Life held by the community college.
