Liverpool pupil's charity club raises nearly ₤3,000

A group of kind hearted Liverpool students have formed a fundraising club and their efforts have raised nearly ₤3,000 to help communities around the world. The pupils at St Edward College, Liverpool, were inspired to form a club that helps to raise funds for the aid agency CAFOD after learning about the projects and communities they help fund around the world. The group called the 'CAFOD Club' has members from year 7 to 13 who meet weekly to organise fundraising events for the charity. The pupils have volunteered much of their time baking cakes to sell at lunchtime; selling candy canes at Christmastime and love messages at Valentines; and even organising a sponsored run. The most popular event has been the 'Great purple Bake Off' which was inspired by the school's purple blazer, and has now become an annual tradition. Religious Education teacher, Miss Gavin, who helps to organise the CAFOD group, said:- "The dedication of the College's CAFOD Club is something that we should all be really proud of, they are a fantastic group of individuals; dedicated, creative and endlessly enthusiastic. Thank you to all members, past and present who have collectively worked together to raise this money. This money is going to an excellent cause and will be used wisely."

Last month, 2 representatives from CAFOD, Ann Hayes and Angela Pender, visited the college to speak to the pupils about the charity's Lent Appeal. This Lent, CAFOD is working with communities in Zambia, where CAFOD's partners provide training in fish farming, beekeeping and crop farming as well as helping individuals to develop business skills. At the end of their presentation, the pupils took the opportunity to pass over a cheque from their latest round of fundraising, which included a raffle and a own clothes day. The total amount they had raised was ₤2,933.60. Ann Hayes, who visited the school to receive the cheque, said:- "It was wonderful to be able to go into St Edward's College and hear about everything they have been doing for CAFOD. For Angela and I, it was a privilege to be able to thank the students for their hard work and donations, and let them know some of the life saving projects they are supporting."
