The staff and pupils of St Catharine’s Catholic Primary School, decided to support A.C.E.S. (Aid for the Children of El Salvador) for their Lent project.
On Shrove Tuesday, a team of ACES supporters arrived armed with 130 pancakes for after school nibblers. Pancake after pancake went out to children, parents and siblings until disaster struck and the pancakes ran out with half a dozen older children and some hungry looking adults still to go. It was the organisers worst nightmare to disappoint the children. The unlucky half dozen took the news well and then without making a fuss, spontaneously, put the £1 coins they had brought for the pancakes into the collecting bowl!
The generosity, compassion and enthusiasm of the children at St Catharine’s shone through.
Thank you to St Catharine’s School and Chaplaincy Team. Every penny of the £171.60 you made will go straight to the children in El Salvador. Mucho Gracias Amigos!
