‘ Enough for All' activity days were attended by Y10 pupils from eight secondary schools in Nottingham diocese.
Participants examined CAFOD’s Act on Poverty campaign and looked at the obstacles to aid reaching people in need, and listened to a talk by a former Prime Minister of Haiti.
11 year-old Rachael Doherty makes and sells her own greetings cards using recycled cards. She has raised several hundred pounds for CAFOD and contributed towards a trip for a member of her church to help build a medical centre in Africa. She hopes her story inspires others.

At harvest, Our Lady’s Catholic High held a concert by staff as well as a simple lunch.
At the lunch, students chose to eat from a reduced menu of soup and a roll or a sandwich.
The school’s head of R.E. said, “Sometimes it’s not just about raising the money, it’s about standing in solidarity with the poor and the hungry.”
