After leading a whole school assembly on Lent family fast day they organise a collection of small change and as an incentive gave donuts to the class that raised the most money – what a great idea! Finally they held a mufti day and raised a total of £703 for the Lent appeal which is an amazing amount and will be doubled by the UK Government.

Many thanks to St Edmund’s Secondary school in Portsmouth for “giving it up” this Lent and raising an amazing £426 for Lent family fast day. Our CAFOD school visitor Alison Humphreys collected the cheque at a beautiful Stations of the Cross service that the school held on the last day of the Spring term at St Mary’s Church, Fratton. The money was raised through various activities throughout Lent so a HUGE THANK YOU to the students, staff and parents at St Edmund’s for your support.

Don’t forget that all donations collected up to the 12th May will be doubled by the UK Government up to £5 million.
