Pupils and teachers dressed as farmers and gardeners and held a ‘Rich Man, Poor Man’ afternoon tea and raised a generous £348 on CAFOD’s Fast Day.

Head Teacher Jenny Waterfield said: “Our pupils paid £1 to dress up as farmers or gardeners to show solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world.

“We also invited pupils and parents to attend a ‘Rich Man, Poor Man’ café. Everyone was given a ticket to decide whether they are rich or poor. The rich, ate cakes and other delicious food; the poor had dried crackers and water.

“We were pleased to see that the richer children shared their food with the others.”

Mrs Waterfield explained: “The idea is to highlight that one-in-eight people around the world goes hungry every day. We held the café last year and the children really enjoyed it.”

Joanna Jarvis, joint diocesan manager who was delighted to be invited to the afternoon tea said “By digging deep, the pupils and staff from St. Peter’s are making a difference. The money raised by their activities will help transform the lives of people living in poverty. CAFOD would like to thank them for all their support.”
