Enjoy an EnglishA newspaper story charity sale activity On the afternoon of May 20th, a charity sale activity was held on our school playground. In order to organize a meaningful activity, we made full preparations. Although it was hard work, students actively took part. Some students brought various books, daily necessities, some even made handicrafts by themselves, and others offered to design posters like “On Sale”, “Huge Discount”, “Last Day” for the sale. The activity was a great success. The money raised from the sales would be donated to the Project Hope. We may not have many things to donate or money to buy numerous things, but we all should participate in this kind of activity, and do something to help those in need. In a word, the charity sale activity means a lot.

As is reported, the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games released the route of the London 2010 Olympic Torch Relay on November 7. The Olympic Torch will visit some of Britain’s bestknown tourist spots, covering 1, 000 villages, towns and cities across the country and reaching more than 95% of Britain’s 62 million population. The 70-day torch relay will be carried in a steamboat across Lake Windermere, on a rowboat on the Thames, and on horseback elsewhere. According to the Committee, most of the 8, 000 torchbearers will be ordinary members of the public, but it’s likely that famous sports stars like David Beckham will also run with the torch.
