Wow St Amand’s Primary East Hendred what an amazing Harvest market, and thank you so much for raising £300 for CAFOD’s Harvest family fast day which is a fantastic amount! We hoped you enjoyed dressing up in bright colours! Thank you to those who brought in fresh items to sell and tinned items for the local food bank . The school Councillors worked very hard selling all the fresh items so many thanks!
We hope you enjoyed the Harvest fast day assembly led by our CAFOD school visitor Kath Oldham. Wasn’t it amazing to learn that in 1990 35% of people in our world lived in extreme poverty but today that figure has gone down to 11% ! So your fundraising is making a huge difference to children’s lives around the world. For example Twalumba from Zimbabwe is now healthy and growing well thanks to a group funded by CAFOD which teach new mums about good nutrition and the best foods to grow to keep their children healthy.
Many thanks to all the pupils, staff and parents at St Amand’s Primary for your support of our Harvest appeal, and also thank you to Kath Oldham for visiting the school.
