Pupils from St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School in Garforth, Leeds have continued to support CAFOD again this year by purchasing some World gifts through their summer sports day fundraising idea.  After collecting coins in empty water bottles, provided by the PTA and raising a tremendous £536 in the process, school councillors met and deliberated over which world gifts they could buy.

The children gave serious thought to which gifts they would choose and wanted especially to provide some of the world’s poorest communities with tools and resources to help change lives for the better.  Eventually they decided on a medical outreach team, a chicken breeding farm, water for a family and a school starter pack.  They even received a free tea towel for cookery club!
