CAFOD South Wales were delighted to receive an invitation from Jenner Park Primary School in Barry to give an assembly focussing on the international development work of CAFOD.
A member of our Education volunteers team was given a very warm welcome before assembly and was able to start the morning with an explanation of what the letters that make up CAFOD mean and that CAFOD works and helps people living in poverty, whatever their race, culture and religion. No-one is left out.

Our team of education volunteers across Cardiff and Menevia had a joint day of working on Monday 15 May when they met together in the Cardiff volunteer centre.
The purpose of the refresher training was to bring together all our wonderful volunteers – experienced and newly-recruited, to explore the resources which we are using in schools during the Summer term and beyond.

St Joseph’s Cathedral School in Swansea organised a day of fundraising fun for the whole school on Friday 3 March and the staff chipped in too!
A parent of one of the children was delighted to support the school’s initiatives and volunteered to help out too – by providing a wonderfully generous Fish and Chip lunch for the staff, which was delivered to the school by two brothers – Ouday and Emir Hiks, from the local chippy.
What a delicious treat and fantastic way to raise funds too!
