CAFOD in LENT by Mini Vinnies

As a school we have decided to try and raise money for CAFOD  to help all the people in the world who aren’t as fortunate as we are and don’t have the things we take for granted. A man from CAFOD visited school and told us that the Amazon rainforest is being destroyed and people are losing their homes. He said one football pitch of rainforest is lost a minute which is bad for the rainforest and the climate. Did you know that 2p can vaccinate 10 children against life threatening diseases? 20p to 50p will buy a mosquito net to keep children safe from malaria and if you have £1 or £2 it can help provide clean water for families. Please help those who are less fortunate. We will have a collection box in the office, please give what you can.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Big Brew for Fairtrade fortnight. We raised £163 for Traidcraft Exchange who support vunerable people to get a better deal and fight trade injustice.

Well done to to our Faith in Action Group in year 6 who baked Fairtrade cakes and biscuits for the event and also helped out on the day by serving refreshments, selling raffle tickets and spreading the message of Fairtrade.

Reception class also helped by baking fairtrade banana muffins which were delicious!
