Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School raised approximately £305 for CAFOD’s ‘Big Fish Little Fish’. From Reception to Year 6 all pupils participated in ‘Big Fish Little Fish’. Children were asked to bring in any coin from 1p-£2. Mrs Hayes and some children helped draw fish with scales for the coins to be placed on.
Every £4 would buy 26 thumb sized fish which would eventually become big fish. These big fish will be used to help other people around the world for different reasons; some would be eaten and others sold to earn money for the poorer parts of the world.
Year 3, however, were raising money themselves by doing a Water Aid bake sale in the playground. They were selling buns and biscuits and raised around £52. All the money we raised went to CAFOD’s ‘Big Fish Little Fish’.
It is good to raise money for others and to know that our money is going to a very good cause.
