Students at St. James’ are very generous with their time and money, working throughout the school year to raise money for our designated charities.

This year we have chosen CAFOD as our school charity and all year groups will be working together to raise funds.

CAFOD is an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. They reach out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. They also campaign for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

You can find out more information about the fantastic work of CAFOD by visiting their website

We will be organising lots of events throughout the year to raise as much money as possible. We have also set up a dedicated option on ParentPay where you can make a donation to support our students in their fundraising efforts. You can follow this link , any donations would be gratefully received by ourselves and CAFOD.

“There are many opportunities that exist beyond the classroom for pupils to be engaged with local, national and international charities”

Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”
