The children of Holy Rood School raised £1000 for the ‘Let the Children Live’ charity.  Based in Doncaster, this Catholic charity looks after street children in Colombia.  More information about the charity can be found on the website: http://letthechildrenlive.org/.

Headteacher, John Gregson said, “The money is a combination of collections from our Advent and Christmas concerts plus an anonymous donation of £500 and will go a long way to changing the lives of some children who literally live on the streets.”

Pictured below, at the end of a school Mass to celebrate the feast of Candlemas, the children presented their cheque for £1000 to Pauline, a representative of ‘Let the Children Live’.
