Young Volunteers training afternoon

Annie Powell

On Wednesday 6th February I went along to All Saints High School for a CAFOD training afternoon with students from other schools around Sheffield. We discussed the things we could do in our schools to raise awareness about CAFOD’s work as well as activities we could organize to raise money for CAFOD. Bread baking and tasting sessions were popular ideas as well as non uniform and fancy dress days.

We got the chance to talk about things we had done recently for CAFOD. Annabel Downing and Abi Ingram from Mount Saint Mary’s got students from their school to sign a petition about the Hungry for Change campaign to send to the Prime Minister.

At the end of an afternoon of sharing our thoughts and ideas I came away with lots of inspiration for things I can do in my school to help improve the lives of people living in poor communities around the world.

I really enjoyed the afternoon and look forward to to hearing about how everybody else found it. Feel free to get in touch.
