Lenten Charities

Lenten Charities

During Lent, the school community raises money to support the work of CAFOD – the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development. CAFOD works with more than 500 partners overseas, supporting poor communities and working to reduce poverty across the world. At the same time we support the work of the Catholic Children’s Society who work with vulnerable children and families in this diocese and, more recently have become involved in the diocesan response to the refugee crisis. We also collect Easter Eggs to donate to the Mid-Cheshire Foodbank to support families in need.

In 2016 we held the first Egg-Olympics with fun challenges for all forms to compete in and raise money. At the same time, form groups collected small change in ‘tubes’ during the half-term, whilst year 10 students took part in a ‘feast or famine’ lunch.
