Pupils from the Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School, Ickenham raised £5,000 for the CAFOD Appeal 2018 engaging in four weeks of fundraising activities which included raffle ticket sales, cake sales, unwanted gift sales, guess the number of sweets in the jar and other sponsored events. Students went all-out, giving up their lunch-time, with each Form encouraged to raise a minimum of £60.
Headteacher Tony Corish commented, ‘Our school is a long-running supporter of CAFOD, donating thousands of pounds every year. This year, our efforts doubled in size due to the special UK Match Funding. The amount raised will be matched by the Government, helping tackle child malnutrition in Zimbabwe, Eritrea and Zambia.’
School Chaplain Luisa Foley added, ‘Every year pupils outdo the previous year’s efforts which demonstrates love and reflects the truth that we are all God’s children, caring for one another.’
