  • Lent Water Appeal

    Published 29/02/16

    This Lent we are fundraising for CAFOD's water appeal. One of the biggest injustices in our world is that so many millions of people do not have access to clean water, and over 1 billion don't have access to adequate sanitation. In this Year of Mercy we want to put our faith into action and help CAFOD bring sustainable long term solutions to these issues for some of the poorest communities in our world. Donations can be brought into school, or you can donate online here (with the added bonus of GiftAid). Click for further info.

    “Tired, drained, remorseful, changed.”

    This is how one of our students summed up their experience of our homeless sleep out. On a cold Friday night in October thirty nine of our Sixth Formers spent an evening reflecting on homelessness before getting a small taste for themselves by spending the night sleeping rough in our playground.  (You can see a gallery of photographs from the evening here.)

  • Jesuit Missions' Urgent Nepal Appeal

    Published 06/05/15

    Jesuit Missions have launched an urgent appeal to help support the work of Jesuits already on the ground in Nepal to provide aid. There are 68 Jesuits in Nepal, serving five schools. They live and work alongside many of the affected communities and are already involved in responding to the crisis. Jesuit Missions UK has already committed £10,000 to help the Jesuits in Nepal respond to the disaster. By donating to the Jesuit Missions appeal we know that the money will go directly to these communities and the people they are helping. If you would like to show your support for, and solidarity with the people of Nepal you can donate via our online donations page here www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/UrgentJesuitMissionsNepalAppeal (if you are a UK tax payer, Jesuit Missions can reclaim an extra 25% in gift aid from any donations you make online) or send money to school, with your son(s) for our collection.
    I am sure you will also join us in remembering the Nepalese community, and all those working to assist them, in your prayers.

    You can keep up to date with the relief work of the Jesuits in Nepal via their Facebook page (you do not have to be a member of Facebook to view this content). https://www.facebook.com/sjrelief4nep
