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.
