As a Mercy School, we encourage our children to think of others in thought and in action.
We raise funds for a number of charities throughout the year.
During Advent we fundraise for CAFOD.
During Lent we fundraise for Salford Diocese (CARITAS) through St Joseph's Penny
During Harvest we collect for the Burnley Women's Refuge.
In school we also have an ongoing collection for the Food Bank in Burnley.
We also organise other events to raise money for various charities, including Pendleside Hospice, Cancer Research, Children in Need and recently we raised over £1000 to help purchase desks for a school in Ethiopia.
Events may include: cake sales, sponsored events, such as a sponsored walk or sponsored spell, non-uniform days etc.
Last year St Joseph's Penny Lenten Appeal raised £84,285. This money was used to support 22 projects in Salford Diocese.
Our school raised £379.31 last year and we are hoping to raise £600 this Lent.
We donated 36 Rucksacks and donated £415 in January 2020.
