Lois is a student from Holy Name Catholic Primary school in Leeds, and is taking direct action campaigning to make sure Leeds schools use less single use plastic, all in her bid to become the next Children’s Lord Mayor or Leeds.
Holy Name Primary school have been involved with CAFODs Live Simply award (one of two primary schools from the parish of Our Lady of Kirkstal)
Lois is raising awareness of how to reduce single use plastic in her school and the message has spread across social media and on local radio broadcasts.
Lois has been visiting other Catholic Primary schools across the deanery and met her local MP Alex Sobel to make sure this issue of reducing single use plastic is heard by the widest audience possible
Lois said “I hope this campaign as part of my bid to become Children’s Lord Mayor, will encourage schools in Leeds to reduce their use of single use plastic and stop creating such a polluting impact on our oceans.”
CAFOD representative, Bronagh Daly said “Lois is such an inspiration for our school children, her actions can inspire more people in our Diocese to do more to reduce their dependency on single use plastic, and care for our common home. We wish Lois all the very best of luck for her campaign to become the next Children’s Lord Mayor of Leeds.”
