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 Harvest time in October we collected food and essential items for Burnley Together, a charity which supports the needy in our local area.
Our Christmas Charity this year was Pendleside Hospice.
We raised £732.95 by holding a Christmas jumper day and collections from the Christmas performances.
During Lent we usually fundraise for CARITAS through St Joseph's Penny.
We hold events such as cake sales, non-uniform days and sponsored events in order to support our chosen charities.
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.
This year we will be raising money for the CAFOD charity.
We donated 36 Rucksacks and donated £415 in January 2020.
SHOEBOX APPEAL FOR THE ELDERLY
Last Christmas we supported Charter House, Burnley with gift boxes for the elderly in the local area.
