This year, during the season of Lent our school community will be fundraising for
CAFOD’S ‘Walk for Water Challenge’
“Water is life” The last year has demonstrated the importance of clean
water. Sadly, not all our global neighbours have access to this vital resource. Abdul and
Mohammed live in the Afar region of Ethiopia. It is one of the hottest places on Earth.
Water is scarce and people make perilous journeys to collect water. Abdul and
Mohammed’s cousin Abdella makes the five-hour round trip twice a day so that everyone has enough to wash with and to drink. This term, we will be using our daily walks to raise money in support of our global neighbours, like Abdul, Mohammed and their
families. Together we can help our sisters and brothers around the world gain access to clean water.
Starting the week of Monday 8th March each class will walk for 15 minutes
each day for 5 days.
We have enclosed a sponsor form so that your child can be sponsored for each 15 minute walk each day (Maximum of £5 per child)
On the Friday each class will take part in ‘The Water Droplet Challenge’ where we will find and count how many droplets are hidden around school!
Our JUST GIVING PAGE which can be accessed by following the link
Can be used to pay all donations into.
If you are unable to access this page you can bring your donation into school by 31/03/21
For every £5 raised we will be adding a water droplet to our CAFOD Lent Display in school, let’s see if we can create a flood of water drops!
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
