Father Tom set three of our Year 6 children the challenge of increasing the £1, £2 and £3 he gave each one respectively during our Mass in January – where we listened to the Parable of the Talents. Isaac, Monica and Imogen increased this £6 to a total of £28.00 that goes towards our Cafod Lenten Alms. Well done to the three of them!
This is what the children had to say about the challenge:-
“In Mass we were given money based on the Bible story of the Talents. Imogen got £1.00, Monica got £2.00 and Isaac got £3.00. We put our money together and had a cake sale for the teachers including yummy cakes, biscuits and mints. We managed to raise £8.02 for CAFOD. We will keep raising money as it has inspired us!” – Imogen & Monica
“I started with £3.00. When I was raising money for CAFOD I started making some cakes and on Thursday I started selling them. They all went like a rocket! I raised £20.00″ – Isaac
