CAFOD – Brighten Up

On Friday we launched our collection for CAFOD’s 2019 Harvest Appeal.  Their ‘Brighten Up’ campaign encourages us to help build a brighter world for poor communities around the world.  

We are raising money to help install solar pumps in countries like Uganda so that people can access clean water.  Throughout October, please send in small change if you would like to help us support CAFOD’s work.

Harvest Collection

Our Harvest Collection is Friday 18th October.  As usual, we are supporting Safenet womens’ refuge and our local foodbank.  Any tins, packets, toiletries etc will be very gratefully received.

Class 8 Assembly 

Family and friends of children in Class 8 are invited to school on Friday 18th at 10am when they present their assembly.  We look forward to seeing everyone.
