St Cuthbert’s, Hartlepool get creative with their fundraising!

The students of St Cuthbert’s school put their heads together and came up with some fantastic ways to raise money for CAFOD!

Mrs. Wilson with her fantastic students

At the beginning of Lent, one of our CAFOD schools’ volunteers visited St. Cuthbert’s in Hartlepool to share a story with the students about a woman called Florence and her village in Zambia- the story behind the Big Fish Lenten Appeal. The story got the students thinking, and in response to the visit, they started their efforts.

The students hosted a pyjama day to begin with, and then they followed this with a cake and a book sale, and finally they all paid some money to wear CAFOD green to school – an idea that was both fun and made people more aware of CAFOD. All in all they managed to raise an incredible £602! Mrs Wilson, the headteacher, was very proud of the students and their generosity!

Continuing with their fantastic efforts, Mrs. Emma Daley, the deputy headteacher of St Cuthbert’s has already started organising two days of CAFOD workshops for the children in Key Stage 2, which will take place later on in the term. Keep up the good work!
