A SCHOOLGIRL has asked Stamford to give peace a chance.

Katy Phipps, 16, of Glinton Road, Helpston, has organised a film festival for the Peace One Day charity.

The Stamford High School pupil will show a documentary by the charity at four venues in the run up to a worldwide amnesty day, called Global Truce.

Katy said: “Peace One Day has had a lot of success, particularly in Afghanistan where they managed to achieve a ceasefire and gave out polio immunisations.

“A big part of the event is a documentary which shows the charity’s work and mission.”

The film will be shown at 7pm tomorrow in St Mary and St Augustine’s Church, at 7.30pm on Sunday in St John’s Church, at 7pm on Monday in Barn Hill Methodist Church and at 7pm on Wednesday at Stamford High School.
