As part of our Spring term Love Project, we are supporting the Southwark Diocese Lent Appeal. The Diocese of Southwark is linked with the Diocese of Central Zimbabwe.
Each year we join with schools and churches across Southwark in raising money to support a range of projects in Zimbabwe – to improve education, medical care and sanitation and to develop income-generating projects for local people.
Later in the term, Year 4 will be carrying out some specific work in their R.E lessons around the Lent Appeal and will be travelling up to London to present the money we have raised at a special service with our diocesan schools at Southwark Cathedral.
To raise money for the Lent Appeal we are asking children to either give something up or take something up for the 40 days of Lent. We are encouraging children to collect sponsorship money for each day they manage this. Do look out for the sponsorship forms which the children will be bringing home today.
Lent begins on the 26th February and ends on Saturday 11th March. The children will need to bring in their sponsorship money in the first week of the Summer term.
