On Monday 11th March, the children of St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School took part in a Big Lent Walk in the woods opposite the school to raise money for CAFOD.  All classes from year R through to year 6 took part, with an aim of walking as many 1km laps of a route through the woods as possible.

The spirit of determination and collaboration was discernible, with older children buddying up to hold hands with and encourage younger children to keep going.  In one afternoon, the children walked 741km in total and to date have raised over £900 for CAFOD in the form of sponsorship from their families.  Children are continuing to walk additional kilometres in their own time after school and at weekends so the school hopes to beat their target of 1000km before the end of term.

The Big Lent Walk has been a wonderful way for children to take up something extra during Lent in order to help others around the world who are not as lucky as them.
