Thank you Douay Martyrs, Ickenham

Douay Martyrs fundraise for CAFOD!

Thank you to the staff and students at Douay Martyrs Catholic School in Ickenham for raising money for CAFOD.  This is a great example of the community working together to help those in need.  Staff and students alike gave up break and lunch-times, to stay after school to donate and make cakes.

There were a wide variety of different stalls including: hot- chocolate stalls, guess how many sweets in the jar, guess the fluffy toy name, unwanted gift sale and many other fundraising events including a Global Fashion show!

Luisa Foley, Chaplain said, “I  believe this is not just about money, it also about the two-fold commandment; love of God and love of neighbour in action.”

Thank you once again to the staff and students for getting involved and raising money for CAFOD!

You too can fundraise for CAFOD! Get advice and support on how to fundraise for us, whether you’re organising your own event or raising funds through your parish or school.

Vita et Pax Primary School continue their fundraising success!

Vita et Pax Primary school, Cockfosters continue their success in fundraising for CAFOD!

A big well done and thank you to the staff and students at Vita et Pax primary school, Cockfosters. The School raised an amazing £528 during Lent for CAFOD!

The students got very creative with fundraising this time around by being paid to do chores at home such as washing up and cleaning.

CAFOD would also like to thank Mrs Archer for showing the students the CAFOD film about the little fish and Florence at the start of Lent and how hard people in Zambia have to work. Watch the CAFOD film below:

Thank you once again to Vita et Pax primary school, keep up the great work!
