CAFOD Fast Day

Brownedge St Mary’s enjoyed a joyful fast day here in Bamber Bridge. Our Head teacher and Deputy Head teacher led assemblies on CAFOD all week, introducing our school family to the Lent appeal. The whole school said the CAFOD Fast Day Grace too. Our CAFOD group had been busy making arrangements for weeks: we hosted a non-uniform day and at break time we got rid of the usual toast and bagels and instead sold fruit – standing in solidarity with those in Zimbabwe we are helping to get a more balanced diet. We also tried to spread a few smiles: “It was fun to hand out the Give It Up stickers at break time” said Connor in year 10.

After the Fast Day we sent to CAFOD our collections so far this year, over £1,5000!

“We are so happy to be a part of CAFOD! And we respect you guys so much! 😊” from Katie in year 7.
