St. Augustine's is proud to support CAFOD through our charitable missions led predominantly by our Mini-Vinnie children.  CAFOD is an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.  It reaches out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. Through the global Church network, CAFOD has the potential to reach everyone. In support of our underlying principles of Catholic Virtues, CAFOD campaigns for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

The Big Lent Walk for CAFOD 2023 

Having been planned by our Mini Vinnies, we launched this year’s special campaign with a special assembly and once our parents were informed and our special fundraising page was set up, we started our walk with a motivational presentation. It was a very exciting time.

Each class came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and wore hats they had made in school in the colours of the rainbow. Each class walked around the school grounds to help raise awareness of global poverty.

Bea Taylor from CAFOD came in to support our campaign and walked with the Reception children.

Well done everyone for living out the catholic virtues in such a worthwhile way!
