Pitsford Pupils give water

Pitsford Pupils raise £984.59 for CAFOD

Year 11 pupils at Pitsford School have been fundraising for CAFOD since the start of the academic year and have managed to raise a staggering £984.59 – enough to provide a whole community with a clean water supply. Their school is close to Pitsford Reservoir which provides Northampton with clean water, so providing a community with clean water was a most appropriate gift.

Accepting the cheque Frank Sudlow, CAFOD Diocesan Manager, expressed his delight: “The students here at Pitsford School have always shown a great concern for those in need and once again have shown great generosity. The funds they have raised will help a community develop their own clean water supply and provide much needed sanitation. Well done all!”

1 in 8 people in our world do not have access to clean water.

The pupils organised several fundraising events including a cake sale and a chocolate raffle to raise this fantastic amount!

They will be continuing to focus on water during the rest of the term in support of CAFOD’s “Thirst for Change” Campaign, asking world governments to ensure that we meet the Millennium Development Goal of halving the number of people without access to clean water by 2015
