During Lent each class takes a turn organising a fundraising event with all the money raised going to help the children in Zambia and Vakigohl. Popular activities include cake sales, penalty shoot-outs and guess the name competitions. Thank you to everyone who contributes by sending in cakes and donating prizes, as well as providing the children with money to spend! Your support is very much appreciated!
Each year our school takes part in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal. This year (2016) we collected 192 boxes which will be sent to needy children in other parts of the World. Thank you to everyone who took the time to put together and donate a shoebox!
St. Michael's Parish Christmas Fayre (2016) was held at Houghton Sports Centre on Saturday 12th November at 1.30pm. School provided 35 hampers for one of the stalls. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the contents of the hampers, the ladies who helped on the stall and to Mrs Soulsby for all her hard work putting the hampers together. The hampers raised £350.00 towards the total raised on the day.

The 5p bus needs donations of second hand clothes, toiletries, bedding and toys to help replenish their stock. The bus travels around the deprived areas in our Diocese and poor families can buy anything from the bus for 5p. We will let you know when the bus is visiting our area. Thank you again for your continued support.
