St Joseph’s Primary School Portishead

Emptying a bag of coins

The school opened their recent Seaside themed summer fete with a giant sun pavement chalk picture covered with copper coins.

Pupils had been collecting coins over the last few weeks in a fish tank. Seventy pounds in 1ps and 2ps was raised for CAFOD. Parish contact Sam Chandler said “the PTFA came up with the idea. I was delighted to be asked to run a ‘Power to Be’ stall at the fair, alongside RNLI Portishead which is also part of our St Josephs family as we are very much a coastal town”.

During February, the First Holy Communion cake sale at the Sunday Family Mass raised £57.50 for CAFOD. This was followed by another sale in May when £48.00 was raised, again for CAFOD.

Children and parents of St. Bonaventure’s Parish First Holy Communion classes, and their helpers are to be congratulated and thanked for bringing in their lovely cakes, for helping out with the cake sale, and for supporting the event.
