Lenten Project 2022

The Lenten Project was a huge success this year with the children working really hard to raise money. We raised an astounding total of £3,924.75 for Pen to Paper Ghana which is incredible. 

 

Each Year group had an enterprise week where they ran stalls or sold handmade items to other children. Some of the stalls included a treasure hunt, nail painting, guess the language and football and basketball competitions. Some of the items made and sold by Year 3 and 4 included homemade bird feeders and keyrings. The children also had the chance to take part in a sponsored dance-a-thon, Easter egg raffle, silver service and a talent show!

 

Pen to Paper Ghana are over the moon to be receiving such a generous amount of money and would like to pass on their thanks to all the children, parents and staff that helped in raising this money. The money raised will be used to help provide books and libraries to children in some of the poorest parts of Ghana as well as training teachers to be able to deliver the best quality reading and writing lessons to children of all ages.

 

It really is true – if we all do a little, it adds up to a lot! Well done St Laurence!
