Lent Appeal 2023: Building Bridges

CCS Lent Appeal: Building Bridges

This year’s appeal is inspired by Pope Francis’s call to ‘build bridges, not walls’ and find ways to connect and help others in their time of need. Every penny raised by your school will support our work with local disadvantaged children and families.
