10 teams from nine local primary schools converged on St Augustine’s High School in Billington near Clitheroe on 16 May to compete for the CAFOD Cup. The event, apart from raising over £400 for CAFOD’s Hungry for Change Campaign this year, was a great success on a sporting front. The honours were shared by Our Lady’s and St Hubert’s in Great Harwood and St Leonard’s, Langho.
Mr Tom Holt School Sports Coordinator, pictured here briefing the players, organised the event with support from the primary schools’ staff and CAFOD volunteer Fred Uttley (pictured here with St Augustine’s Headteacher Mr Michael Wright. Mr Holt said: “It was a credit to the schools for making the CAFOD Cup a success again this year. The games were played in a great spirit and the children were able to visit the High School where many will be coming in September.”
Fred Uttley was present at the event shortly before embarking on his marathon 1,100 mile Tour de Fred bike ride round England and Wales for CAFOD’s Hungry for Change Campaign to change the world’s food system. For further details see: http://www.cafod.org.uk/Fundraise/Sponsored-events/Tour-de-Fred.
Well done to all concerned and many thanks to the parents who signed Hungry for Change action cards.
