Jenny Seymour is a Schools Volunteer in CAFOD Hallam and is asking schools to Brighten up this Harvest Fast Day
Tomorrow (Friday October 6th) is CAFOD’s Harvest Fast Day. Following the huge success of our previous fast day campaigns, we are asking school children and their teachers to “Brighten Up” for Harvest and we have had some amazing results!
Some children are wearing their brightly coloured PE t-shirts (as they are all in bright colours to signify their “house”) and other schools have truly embraced the Brighten Up theme and are having a sponsored “colour splash” – I am told this involves bright coloured powder paint and a very brave headteacher!!! You can download your very own fundraising kit – with sponsorship forms and press release templates here.
This year’s assembly is great, as it sees us revisit the children of El Salvador that were in need of CAFOD’s help some years ago and it shows how CAFOD (with your support) has helped their communities (and in turn them as individuals) to grow out of poverty and be in a much better place to achieve their dreams!
Schools volunteers will be visiting schools this half term and delivering the harvest fast day assembly – Book a Harvest Fast Day visit now!
