Schools Raises Money for Zambian Orphans

Mr Harris, Fr.Biggerstaff, School Head Boy,
Miss Crossley (School Charities Co-ordinator)
Cranmore School has raised over £4K for Orphans in Zambia in its annual Action Day.

Action Day is an annual fixture in the Cranmore School Calendar. Organised by the Director of Music, Richard Harris, every boy in the senior department (aged 8-13) participates in a full day of “action” which is given over to the performing arts. Richards says, “ Boys can choose to play an instrument, recite a poem or even perform in a humorous sketch. They raise money through sponsorship and all funds go to our chosen charity. We are delighted to support Mission Together which is part of Missio” 

Missio is the Catholic Mission Charity helping people across the world.

Fr Richard Biggerstaff, who collected the donation on behalf of the charity, delivered a powerful school assembly in which he explained how this sum alone would almost cover the full cost of a new house for the many orphans in need.

The final sum raised was £4,324.59.
