WE DID IT!
A huge thank you to everyone who has brought in CAFOD boxes, we have exceeded our target. We have raised enough to buy 3 community toilets for rural African communities. We've also raised enough to buy some seeds to help families grow their own food.
If you still have a box to return, please do so by Friday 27th April so we can send the money off in time for the government to match the funds raised.
Thank you to all those who have been collecting and returning the CAFOD boxes. As of Tuesday 20th March we have raised over £79. Our aim is to raise £255 which will provide 3 community toilets for areas in Africa that do not have access to toilet facilities, something we take for granted.
A reminder that all boxes should be returned to school by Monday 16th April. If you wish to return it earlier then please do.
CAFOD assembly at Sacred Heart
On Monday the 19th February, we welcomed Lynne Smith into Sacred Heart to talk about the work of CAFOD. She was introducing the 'Give it yup' campaign which we are going to be partaking in. The children learnt a lot about the work of CAFOD and are excited to raise some money for people less fortunate than us.
Each family will be receiving a box to collect any spare change they have no matter how little. All the money raised by our school will go towards buying essentials such as toilets, food and clean water. The Government will also double any money raised for CAFOD throughout this Lenten period.
At Sacred Heart we aim to live by the 5W's. This is a framework created by Salford Diocese to live as God taught us. The 5W's are:
