Fishy Fundraiser at York School

Children at St Wilfrid’s School in York raised £125 for CAFOD thanks to a Lenten project organised by the Mini Vinnies.

St Wilfrid's

St Wilfrid’s held a fish-themed fundraiser

They prepared an assembly to explain the project and requested a small donation to the Lent Fast Day appeal.

Cut out fish shapes decorated by the pupils and containing a prayer or commitment of care to be undertaken during Lent were displayed around the school hall.

We are very grateful to all schools and parishes who took part in fundraising activities this year.
