Fund raising Redditch pupils pin the tie on the Principal

Ross Crawford 25th Feb, 2018

‘PIN the Tie on the Principal’ was just one of the activities undertaken by pupils at St Bede’s Middle School last Friday as they held their Lenten Charities Day.

It was an opportunity for all at the Studley Road Catholic school to raise money for various charities including CAFOD (Catholic Agency For Overseas Development).

Students devised, created and put into practice all manner of stalls and fundraising ideas, ranging from selling home-made fiery samosas and cakes to fun with the Principal and his tie.

Principal, Lloyd Roberts, said: “The Lenten Charity Day clearly marks the start of Lent, a period of waiting, prayer and service to others.

“Pupils are hugely enthusiastic and at times we have to rein them back from their expansive ideas.

“Year on year pupils have raised more and more money for CAFOD.

“From the enthusiasm and creativity of both pupils and staff, I am happy to say that the Catholic Life is at the heart of everything we do at St Bede’s.”

The school is also planning to hold a sponsored walk for CAFOD later in the year.
