Pupils from reception to Year 6 took part and the event raised approximately £305 for CAFOD’s Lent appeal.
Children were asked to bring in a coin from and some pupils helped draw fish with scales for the coins to be placed on.
Year 3 also raised money by selling buns and biscuits, raising £52.
CAFOD’s Lent appeal focused on the story of a Zambian woman called Florence and the theme of ‘turning little fish into big fish’.
In Lent, CAFOD worked with communities in Zambia. It is estimated that over half of Zambians live below the poverty line, meaning many families do not have enough money to meet basic needs such as food, housing and clothing.
CAFOD’s partners in Zambia provide training in fish farming, beekeeping and crop farming as well as helping individuals within communities develop business skills.
