A huge thank you goes out to St Anne’s Catholic High School, who raised over £4000 for CAFOD’s work in the Philippines!
The school, in Palmers Green, North London, raised the money in the run up to Christmas through various events such as their Christmas Bazaar. The money will go towards CAFOD’s work helping people affected by the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines.
On Monday, 27 January, CAFOD Westminster’s Tony Sheen visited the school to thank them for their hard work and generosity. He said:
“Thank you St Anne’s for being such great partners to CAFOD here in Enfield. It’s thanks to your support throughout the year that we are able to help our brothers and sisters across the world to work their own way out of poverty.”
Thanks again to all the students, staff and parents at St Anne’s for making such a fantastic contribution to CAFOD’s work in the Philippines! Even though the disaster may no longer be on our TV screens, CAFOD is still engaged in a massive effort to give immediate aid to people affected by the typhoon and to help them in the long-term to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of this disaster. If you would like to donate to the appeal, visit the CAFOD Philippines appeal webpage, or go to CAFOD’s emergencies news page for the most up to date information on what we are doing to respond to this crisis. Please also keep the people affected by the typhoon in your thoughts and prayers.
Of course, even as CAFOD responds to disasters such as the typhoon in the Philippines and the ongoing violence in Syria, our work continues with developing communities around the world. If you would like to let us know about a CAFOD event you’ve organised in your parish or school, or would like to find out more about how to go about doing so, get in touch with us on 0208 449 6970 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
