Cafod 'Big Brew' 2013

The school council visited the Parish Centre to take part in the 'BIG BREW' event which was organised to raise money for a variety of charities, including CAFOD, Fairtrade and Trade Craft.
The event was most interesting and made us all think about how people in other countries are not paid enough for the work they do. We discovered that some charitable organisations support small projects, often organised by small groups of people and individuals. These communities make lovely articles for sale and are paid a fair price for their work. We saw lovely pens and decorated notebooks and a hand made book which had a re-cycled cover made from a tyre! For more information see www.cafod.org.uk. We enjoyed cakes and tea and purchased some small items to bring back to school.
