Warwick youngsters don walking shoes to stamp out global hunger

PUPILS in Warwick donned their walking shoes to help stamp out global hunger.

Youngsters from St Mary’s Immaculate Primary embarked on a fund-raising walk to support the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD).

And the group has more than doubled their target of £300 towards efforts to tackle global malnutrition in children.

A spokeswoman said: “Our school fund-raising effort will support CAFOD’s continued longer term food projects, supporting mothers and babies, training in farming methods resilient to climate change, and savings and loans schemes which can help people to start small businesses, across the world.

“CAFOD is one of our school’s regular charities that we support, particularly during the month of Lent, when we are told to give generously to those who are less fortunate.

“We hope to stamp out hunger across the world.”

Guest speaker from CAFOD, Ann Alison, also paid a visit to explain the important work which will be supported by the money they have raised.
