CAFOD’s Big Lent Walk!

This Lent our schools is supporting CAFOD and joining other schools around the country to help fight poverty around the world.


To raise money, we’re going to take part in the CAFOD ‘Big Lent Walk’ this Lent. We endeavour for every child to walk 2 miles during their PE lessons this half term. This will equate to 20 laps of the astro pitch completed over a period of 5 weeks. There is a sponsor form for your child on the reverse of this letter so they can collect sponsors (we have more in the school office if needed) or you can give directly via our JustGiving page:



How our fundraising will help

CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, working together with communities all over the world for an to end to extreme poverty and global injustice.


Our fundraising will help hardworking people like James the fisherman in Liberia to feed his family for good.  James now has the tools and training he asked for to fish safely and sustainably. Compasses and GPS fish-tracking systems means he can find the best fishing spots and make his way home with an even bigger catch for his family.  


We have chosen to support CAFOD as a way for our pupils to put their faith into action. By raising money together, we will be supporting our brothers and sisters around the world and living out our school mission.


Join as a family!
