This Lent, our school and Trust community will support the work of CAFOD and their Lenten Campaign ‘Walk for Water’.
As a Trust community we will be completing CAFOD’s ‘Walk for Water’ challenge both at home and in school. Throughout Lent our steps, miles and kilometres will be added together to complete a virtual Pilgrimage around our schools and other key landmarks in our Trust.
CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, a charity that helps the poorest, most hard-to-reach people around the world. By raising money for CAFOD, we will be supporting our brothers and sisters around the world, inspiring our children to become active global citizens and living out our school mission.
SO WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO?
It’s quite simple really…lots of walking, cycling or running! At BRW, we love a challenge! We love it even more can raise money along the way. So here at BRW, we’re going to challenge ourselves to walk/run/cycle:
A FULL MARATHON!
The Foundation stage will be walking a whopping 5K!
Yes, you read it correctly. We’ve got this Team BRW!
Neighbouring classes in school will be teaming up to walk a half marathon each by Easter. Combined, that’s a FULL MARATHON and a huge 42 km in total! Those at home can challenge themselves to walk/run/cycle as much as they can too! WE CAN DO THIS! Just follow these instructions to get started:
- Whether you’re at home or at school, walk, cycle or run as much you can! Make yourself a badge to wear using the template below!
- Add up the miles/km/steps you do either daily or weekly and click on the link to add in your distance: https://forms.gle/8nwU1LpF8Hj61bhn8

For RED NOSE DAY we will be holding a non-uniform day to raise money for causes supported by comic relief. On Friday 19th March, dress in non-uniform, superheroes, fancy dress…anything you like for £1!
So what are we waiting for? Let’s raise as much money as we can as we WALK FOR WATER!
