Finishing Read for the Top

Good news for R4T! Went to check on a water project in a secondary school that was done during our absence. The school has been reading The Hunger Games in their second year class, but we were locked out of schools during October when we should have done the contest. They have arranged things so we can do it next Wed. Hoping the other schools will also work around the problems.
