This year, 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.
During our annual Lent Appeal, 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 year, Year 4 will be carrying out some specific work in their R.E lessons around the Lent Appeal and they 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 raise money through either giving something up or taking something up for the 40 days of Lent. We are encouraging children to collect sponsorship money for each day they manage this.
Sponsorship forms will be going home with the children on 14th February. Lent begins on the 26th February and ends on Saturday 11th March.
Children will need to bring in their sponsorship money the first week back of the Summer term.
