School volunteers Angela Bow and Lesley Waite received a warm welcome at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School Wanstead from head Diane Robertson, staff and pupils.

During the KS2 assembly Angela reminded pupils of the story of the Feeding of the 5000 and then baskets were passed around with small pieces of bread for pupils to eat. They were then asked to close their eyes and think of all those children who may be going to bed hungry that night. Once everyone had taken a small piece of bread there was plenty left over which highlighted that there is enough food in the world for everyone if we share it.

Earlier in the year, Brenda Sherlock, teacher and CAFOD parish volunteer spoke to Year 6 pupils about the Hungry for Change campaign and why she was going to the IF rally in Hyde Park.

Robbie, pictured here, also joined the rally with his family and said he went because he didn’t think it was fair that some people in the world do not have enough to eat.

The school also has a CAFOD group that had raised £44.50 during the term
