CAFOD 'Walk for Water'

This Lent, St Edmund Campion will be joining the other schools in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust in a virtual Pilgrimage, which in turn will support the work of CAFOD and their Campaign ‘Walk for Water’.


Every day in Lent, during the school day (28 days in total), the children will complete at least one lap of the playground/garden (if working from home) in a creative way; hopping, hula-hooping, skipping etc.


We are hoping to add together the miles/kilometres we have walked to complete a virtual pilgrimage around our schools.


CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, a charity that helps the poorest, most hardto-reach people around the world.


For more information about the “Walk for Water” appeal you can visit the CAFOD website:


Please sponsor your child or make a donation via Parentpay – you will be able to access this from Monday 22nd February.


Each day the children can colour in one of their 28 footsteps to show they have taken part in the challenge and as a school we will record the distance travelled by each class.


We are looking forward to journeying on our Pilgrimage during this important liturgical season and hope that you and your family will join us!
