A BIG THANK YOU must go to our latest Called to Action Stars who have helped Caritas Services and their local community in recent months.
The Chaplaincy Team at St Brendan’s Primary in Bolton challenged each class to raise as much money as they could during Lent and to vote to hold a fun event of their choice. Events included Lent Fest, throwing wet sponges at teachers, Easter egg hunt and a pyjama fun run! The school raised a wonderful £567, which will help Caritas to provide immediate help to the most needy.
Divine Mercy Primary in Manchester organised a collection of items to make hampers for those in need during Lent. These were delivered to Caritas Cornerstone Day Centre by their school gardener.
St Peter’s High School in Manchester took part in the Head Teacher’s raffle and other activities to allow them to put together and deliver food parcels & gifts to Cornerstone Day Centre. The Diversity Council delivered assemblies to ensure that everyone in school understands the importance of feeling loved, valued and respected, highlighting the Dignity of the Human Person. The Resourced Provision Students contacted local businesses to invite their donations to put together gift packs for twelve struggling families. Staff organised a collection of new toys to be given to families via Wood Street Mission, providing a great role model of love in action for students.
