On Friday 23rd February it was CAFOD Family Fast Day. St Bede’s families showed their commitment to helping people in the local community and further afield, by generously supporting our Lenten appeal to help us help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Children donated tins of food to the Key to Life Foodbank (an operation providing emergency food and support to people in crisis across South Tyneside) as well as donating money to CAFOD (Catholic Aid for Overseas Development), one of the largest networks in the world, helping some of the poorest and marginalised people in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
We collected over £50 in monetary donations and a wealth of food products for the Key to Life Foodbank. As you can see by the photographs of our Mini Vinnies with our food donations, together we make a huge difference!
