Year 6 - Sponsored Fun Run on school field - £1527.75
The activities raised a magnificent £2497 - a brilliant effort from the children who were so wonderfully supported by their families and friends.
The money has been used to buy a range of World Gifts from CAFOD:-
2 cows, 3 donkeys,
6 goats, Chirpy Chickens, a chicken breeding farm
a chicken coop, a bountiful greenhouse, a life saving gift of fresh water for 5 families, a community water supply for a whole village, 1 community toilet, care for healthy mum and baby. training for a village vet, teach 3 people to read,

This came to a grand total £2047; the remaining £450 has been sent to the Son of Divine Providence to support their work in the Philippines.
