Students from St Thomas More’s RC College in Denton, Manchester presented a cheque for £2,000 for CAFOD. Inspired by the story of CAFOD’s work in Myanmar in Lent, the students and staff really got involved as a whole community to make a difference for CAFOD’s work across the world.

Mr Tim Harris, RE teacher said that, “Working together in forms, the students engaged in a wide number of fundraising activities raising awareness of CAFOD’s work and helping people work together and grow in understanding of our work. The Youth Chaplaincy group opened up a Fairtrade tuck shop which raised nearly £200 and 30 students and staff took part in a sponsored bag packing event at a local supermarket raising a further £740 in the local community.

In thanking the year representatives, Ged Edwards, CAFOD Diocesan Manager for Salford Diocese, said: “It has been a fantastic effort engaging people and learning about the difference we can make when we act together.”

Ged went onto explain the work which local supporters are helping to make possible after the tragic earthquakes in Nepal through CAFOD.
