During Lent, our school are currently  fundraising for CAFOD. We are taking part in the big Lent walk where we are collectively trying to walk 200km. 

Please help us to raise as much money as possible by sponsoring our whole school family. If you have been on a walk, please either sponsor and leave a message with how many km you have walked or send me a message and I can update our page.

We will also be walking during the school day in our classes to achieve our target so any sponsorship will be greatly appreciated. 

Your sponsorship can change lives. Every £1 raised through the Big Lent Walk will help fight poverty globally in countries like Afghanistan, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.

This year, CAFOD’s Lent Appeal is helping fishing communities feed their families in Liberia, and SCIAF’s Wee Box Appeal is focused on women and girls in Rwanda facing gender-based violence.

Also in Ethiopia, CAFOD and SCIAF are working together to respond to the devastating food crisis there. Years of drought caused by the climate crisis means families are no longer able to cope, but your support means we are working with people right now, providing them with water, emergency food and healthcare.

With your hard work and sponsorship this Lent, we can change families’ lives for good and tell poverty to take a hike.

Thank you for your kindness,
