2023 News

Our fundraising event took place a with a walk along the famous Leeds to Liverpool Canal. The Leeds section of the historic 129 mile long Leeds Liverpool Canal which was completed in 1777 is the setting for our 2023 ODE walk. Starting in Horsforth the route will take us down to the canal and then follow the towpath to the centre of Leeds.


This will help ODE to provide technology resources to their partner schools in The Philippines.


We would like to thank everyone who took part all all who supported us. If you would like to show us your support please visit https://wonderful.org/charities/1188338
