Children from St Wilfrid’s in Longridge present Volunteer in Brazil with a cheque for £800

Following a day at Lee House where the children explored issues of justice the community at St Wilfrid’s set about raising money for Volunteer in Brazil’s micro loan project. St Wilfrid's, Longridge

An amazing sum of £800 was raised. The money will be used to support a family in the region of Cristino Castro to invest in their small fish farm.

The family will repay the interest free loan within a period of two years. The money will then be made available for other families to invest in other income generating projects.

On behalf of families and communities in the region of Cristino Castro I would like to thank the whole school community for their generosity and support.
