Charity Work

Fundraising for CAFOD (Catholic Agency For Overseas Development)

Our lenta charity this Year is CAFOD. Pupils will receive a CAFOD envelope to save money they would normally spend on sweets and other treats. We are hoping that a member of CAFOD will come and address the children about the essential work of the organisation during a whole school assembly. It will help us all recognise where the money we raise is going and will also show who and how the funds are helping through the work of the charity.

We are encouraging the children to participate in:

  • Raising funds for an important charitable cause
  • Practising a Lenten discipline

Let’s all get fundraising together as part of our almsgiving this Lent.

The children take part in a variety of charity events throughout the year such as Show Racism the Red Card where the children will wear red to school on Friday 20th of October and donate what they find affordable to the cause. We also request food donations for the local food bank at Harvest and Christmas.

The School Council will discuss and help organise charitable events to raise money for local charities and our school in each big term.
