Students raise Money for World Youth Day
Congratulations to Mary Georgiades and Anna Gilroy in 10 Ward for their endeavours raising money to support their participation in World Youth Day in Lisbon at the end of July this year.
Both students have been working hard with fundraising efforts. With a mix of sweets sales, bun sales, prayer sponsorship, coffee mornings and a sponsored hike up Pen Y Ghent they have raised just over £1740 so far.
They would like to particularly thank the parishioners of St Austin’s and the English Martyrs in Wakefield for their very generous support and encouragement.
The girls have also arranged a Year 7 disco with a tuck shop for Thursday 25th May and they hope that Year 7 will support them with this event.
We wish the girls (and Mrs Gilroy) every success in their climb of Pen Y Ghent on Saturday the 27th May.
