Year 4 Cafod Team


Well done to the amazing Y4 CAFOD team! As part of their Lenten preparations, they decided to raise some money for CAFOD. They came up with the idea to sell some of their unwanted toys and make some delicious cakes for their friends. They organised everything themselves and set up a stall each break time for a week. It was a fantastic success and they raised the brilliant amount of £85.00 which was added to the school total for Lenten Alms. Well done CAFOD team we are really proud of you!
