CAFOD Shoe Shine

15 Mar 2018 | Posted In Catholic Life of School, Charitable Fundraising

On Wednesday 14th March, the school held their Annual Shoe Shine to raise funds for our Lenten Appeal helping both CAFOD and The Good Shepherd.

As well as furthering our Lenten promise of almsgiving, this was a great opportunity to reflect on a key value of our school community: that of humility. On Holy Thursday, Jesus washed the feet of His disciples – He did this to show that He was no greater than those around Him. As well as reflecting His example of service, we also aimed to show an act of solidarity with those around the world to whom cleaning shoes is a way of making a living.

There was a steady stream of pupils in the main hall and staff were more than happy to take up brushes and polish in order to clean the shoes of pupils. Over £200 was raised on the day for these very worthwhile causes!
