Growing In Love - Lenten Alms 2017
During Lent we were asked to give "Alms". We raised money for "Mission Together". This years theme was "Growing In Love". For every £3 collected in each class a "coloured heart" was added to the whole school display in the hall. The money raised will be put towards the 2017 Mission Together campaign "Together in Kenya". - Children helping children.
Amount Raised - £137.43
