Welcome to St Francis' Catholic Primary School 
Charitable Giving 
As a caring School, we have been thinking of others, either by raising money or sending in gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Below you will find information about some of the good causes we have supported recently 

St Francis Mass and Harvest Sale - Water Source in Uganda £665 

Year 6 led our school Mass on the Feast of St Francis. At the Mass the children reminded us that St Francis gave what he had to help the poor. Inspired by this message, we organised a Harvest Sale in order to provide the funds for a school in Uganda to have its own independent water source. This resource will help to ensure a better level of hygiene and public health for those in the school and nearby village. It will also provide water to irrigate land so the children in the school can plant fruit trees and grow crops. Each class organised it's own stall and we are grateful to the parents who donated goods. In total £665 was raised which will help our brothers and sisters in one of the poorest parts of the world. 

CAFOD and Coronovirus 2020 - £500 

Year 6 were inspired by a CAFOD workshop to help some of the most needy people in the world. They found out how Coronavirus is affecting communities in South East Asia and wanted to provide face-masks, soap and hand-sanitiser for those who live in these countries. With the help of the other children in the school, they filled a huge water container with loose change, raising £500.00. This will be used to buy PPE and hygiene equipment for communities in Cambodia and Bangledesh. 

The Grand Appeal for Bristol Children's Hospital 2021 - £2621 

The Grand Appeal supports patients, families and staff at Bristol Children’s Hospital. Laps of the school field were completed to raise money and the children found many different ways to complete each lap. Thank you to parents, friends and family members who supported us. 

Australian Bush Fire 2020 - £402.78 

Year 6 pupils raised nearly £400 for the Red Cross Australian Bush Fire Appeal. The children decided to hold a cake sale after hearing about the terrible fires. They wanted to do something to help put out the fires and make life a little better for all the people and creatures affected. A spectacular amount of money was raised and so many cakes were donated that they enough to hold a second cake sale! 
Comic Relief 2020 - £131.62 

Children in Need 2021 - £293 

The children had a surprise visit from Pudsey Bear as part of their Children in Need fund raising day. The children had chosen 'Strictly Sparkly' as their theme and they wore their best ballroom dancing outfits, sparkly hairbands and bow-ties in place of their school uniform. Pudsey visited each class and joined in the fun including races on the playground helping to raise lots of money for Children in Need!
