Students from St Louis Catholic Primary School in Aylesbury did an awesome job raising money for CAFOD this lent. Taking charity seriously the students and staff at the school showed great care to raise funds and awareness for the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

Bishop David visited the school this week and thanked the students for reaching out to those in most need in such an practical way. He was shown around the school by two of the prolific fundraisers and was impressed by their knowledge and practical application. As part of his visit Bishop David visited each class before being questioned by the children about being a Bishop.

Catherine Machine, Headteacher said,

“Thinking of practical ways they can support others prepares our pupils for being global citizens, and Year 6 took their responsibilities seriously whilst raising funds for CAFOD. The Mufti day and cake sale were a great success and I am delighted to tell you we raised £1018.93. Amazing!”

CAFOD’s Lent appeal, Walk Against Hunger aims to rid the world of hunger. Every £1,000 raised through Walk against Hunger can build a climate-resistant greenhouse in a remote community facing the worst of the climate crisis, and can teach local school children how to grow highly nutritious, healthy vegetables all year round.
