Every year the school community holds a Harvest Celebration with the proceeds raised for CAFOD’s work around the world. This year was no exception.

We asked the school to share with us a little bit about what they did this year and  Hannah – from Year 6 – wrote this report for us:

“We held our Harvest celebration at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Buckfast to raise money for CAFOD.  Each class practised their readings and singing, although we all felt a bit nervous on the day when all the adults started to arrive.  At the end of the service, everyone who attended was invited to stay for refreshments which had been made by pupils in the school.  Parents had also sent in donations of food, which were also sold during the afternoon.

The food went really quickly and altogether we raised £158.  We were all really pleased by the fact that we had raised so much money, I am sure CAFOD will spend it carefully and put it to good use.”

Thank you Hannah for the great report! We would like to thank the staff, children and parents for your fantastic support for CAFOD again this year.
