Alison Humphreys receiving the cheque for CAFOD.
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.
Running in the Malta Marathon
Congratulations to Jane Carr, a member of staff at St Paul’s RC Primary in Portsmouth for completing the Malta Marathon in 4 hours and 1 minute. What a fantastic achievement.
Thank you so much for raising nearly £100 and contributing 26 miles to the Share the Journey campaign. The aim of the campaign is to walk around the world (24,900 miles) in solidarity with refugees and migrants who have to flee from their homes. We are urging the Prime Minister to play leading role in the forthcoming global compacts on migration and refugees. You can sign the online petition here

St Paul’s Primary Portsmouth
Hi to St Paul’s Primary school in Portsmouth and many thanks for welcoming our CAFOD school visitor Maureen Thompson to your school. We hope you enjoyed the Lent family fast day assembly about Marian and her two sons from Zimbabwe which showed how donations to CAFOD have helped Marian to grow a vegetable garden. The vegetables have helped Svondo to grow strong and healthy and prevented him from being malnourished like his brother Twanda was when he was younger.
