St Michael’s Primary school, Treforest

Pupils at St Michaels, Treforest present a cheque to Richard Laydon, Manager for CAFOD South Wales

The children at St Michael’s Catholic Primary School made a river of coins in support of our ‘Give it Up’ Lenten appeal.

Acting head teacher, Chris Meek said:

“We had an assembly where a CAFOD representative showed the children how difficult life is for people in other countries who have to walk for miles to fetch water. He also showed them a bucket of dirty water which made them appreciate how easy they have it, turning on a tap and getting clean water to drink whenever they want.

It was an inspirational assembly and afterwards we put a piece of paper on the floor and encouraged the children to fill it with pennies to make our river of coins.”

St Michael’s School raised more than £300. A wonderful achievement!
