Each child donated money towards the campaign and brought with them a backpack to represent the emergency packs carried by the people of Myanmar when they are threatened with a natural disaster.

Immaculate Conception 3 sThe children also carried a tin of fruit in their backpacks which was later donated to St Wilfrid’s Centre in Sheffield; over 200 tins of fruit were collected!  After the walk, an assembly was held in the school hall and the tins of fruit were collected ready to be taken to St Wilfrid’s Centre.

This project was part of the school’s Lent preparations.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event.
