Students of Brigidine school, Windsor, held a mini sale on March 1 to raise funds for the Catholic aid agency CAFOD.
The students, from years 5 and 6, collected bric-a-brac from all the other junior school students and then sold it to make as much money as possible. Cakes were also on offer.
Teacher Emily Ford said: “We had an assembly back in January given by CAFOD Education Volunteer Sharon Westby and the children learned that one person out of every eight in the world goes to bed hungry each night. That’s the same as the population of Europe, USA, Canada and Australia combined. We all wanted to do something about that so our pupils decided to take action in this way and fundraise for CAFOD who help people feed themselves today, tomorrow and long into the future.”
The sale was a big success and we are very grateful to the students for their efforts. Well done girls.
