Our Lenten Fundraising
This Lent we are supporting CAFOD and joining other schools around the country to help stamp out hunger. Around the world, 200 million children are at risk of malnutrition. By challenging ourselves to walk and get sponsored this Lent, we will be helping children to grown big and strong.
We are teaming up with CAFOD to Walk Against Hunger in solidarity with the 200 million children whose lives are at risk because of malnutrition.
Sponsorship details will be uploaded shortly - check back soon!
How our fundraising will help
CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, working together with people living in poverty in some of the most hard-to-reach places in the world. Our fundraising will support people like Lombeh who lives in Sierra Leone. When she was a baby, Lombeh was dangerously malnourished. One day, her mother Amie met a group of women walking along the road. They were new mothers just like herself and they told her about a CAFOD-funded clinic where Amie was taught how to make a highly nutritious food paste from a traditional recipe – perfect for malnourished babies – and it helped Lombeh get better and grow. Now Amie is teaching other new mums in her local community how to make the baby food. We have chosen to support CAFOD as a way for our pupils to put their faith into action. By raising money to tackle hunger, we will be supporting our brothers and sisters around the world and living out our school mission.
Join the CAFOD raffle
Another way to get involved at home is to take part in the CAFOD raffle.
We really appreciate your support and hope that everyone has fun helping us raise money for CAFOD.
