Last month, pupils at Vita et Pax Preparatory School, Cockfosters took part in a special Iron Man challenge, where pupils were sponsored to complete an obstacle course across the school as part of CAFOD’s Brighten Up Harvest appeal.

The students from Vita et Pax Preparatory School raised the amazing sum of £2,210 to support Brighten Up Harvest Appeal. They chose to support CAFOD after learning about Ruben and his family, a resource that was incorporated into the school Harvest assembly.

“We were delighted with the amount the children raised for the Brighten up the Harvest appeal. It was much more that we would have had expected.” (Assistant Head Teacher, Fionnuala Archer)
