Members of the newly formed Justice & Peace Group at Loreto High School, Chorlton, in Manchester put their baking skills to the test in aid of CAFOD. The group then used all their marketing talents to sell the cakes to fellow pupils and members of staff, in order to raise some valuable funds for the work of CAFOD in the developing world.
Over a number of weeks a CAFOD School Volunteer, Ann Wilson, visited the school to talk to the pupils in Years 7 & 8 about the work CAFOD does with its partners around the world. As a result the pupils, with the help of their teachers Gabriella Shahidi and Laura Spencer, set up a Justice & Peace Group to look at how they could help their fellow sisters and brothers in need around the developing world.
Having held a few meetings to discuss issues around development and how they could help others achieve their full potential (John 10:10), the J & P group decided to hold a cake sale to raise funds for CAFOD’s work. Every delicious cake was sold and the group raised a terrific £120.35. Well done Loreto Justice & Peace Group, keep up the good work, the money raised will help change peoples’ lives for the better.
