St Joseph’s Big Silly Share!

St Joseph's Catholic Academy Big Silly Share Harvest 2014

Look at this sea of Big Silly Share enthusiasts at St Joseph’s Catholic Academy in Aldershot!  The entire school turned out in their silliest costumes to support Harvest Fast Day and raise an amazing £707.25!

This month, schools all over the diocese have been learning some silly facts about our global food system and reflecting on the fact that, although there is enough food in our world, right now one in eight people are still hungry.  That doesn’t make sense, does it? It’s silly!

Pupils dressed up in their silliest clothes to celebrate the Big Silly Share and acknowledge that although the food system is silly – they’re serious about doing something to change it!

St Joseph's Catholic Academy Big Silly Share Harvest 2014Classes decided to dress up to raise money and make a real difference to the lives of other children around the world.  Their efforts will enable us to help families from places such as Nicaragua in South America to Bangladesh in Asia to produce food and make a living.

Thank you so much to everyone at the school for taking part, and especially Anita Morten for organising everything and sending us these fantastic photos!   Thank you all!
