English Martyrs’ RC Primary School, in Holgate,York is keen to continue its amazing fund-raising for CAFOD this Lent. In 2010, the school’s CAFOD Lenten appeal together with the Harvest fast day appeal raised over £3000. Headteacher Derek Sutherland hopes to maintain this success in 2011.
“We plan for at least one fund-raising activity each week during Lent”, he explained. “The children are very aware of the problems in the world and are keen to play their part in helping others.”
Activities in 2011 include “Wear a funky Hat Day”, home clothes day, sponsored activities, giving up snacks and Easter Bonnet parade and covering a map of the world with 10p coins!
