Fun was the theme of school end of term fundraisers! From soak the teacher events to wacky hair days, schools around England and Wales have been having fun and making a splash to support people without water across the world.

Take a look at some of the fabulous and fun stories from children and young people last term.

Soak the teacher

It was a very wet day at Archbishop McGrath High School in Bridgend when students gathered outdoors to soak their teachers to raise money. The whole school joined in with fun activities, constructing a water themed photobooth, washing cars, baking cakes and collecting coins in water bottles to raise a fantastic total of £2,120.

Teachers were the focus of fundraising at St Bedes College in Manchester also, with Mr Jeffries and others shaving their beard to raise money!

Wacky clothes day

Meanwhile it was Wacky Wednesday at St John Vianney Primary School in Blackpool, with children bringing £1 each to wear wacky pyjamas, wacky hats and hairdos to school.

Fishy displays

Children in St Charles Primary School in Measham got creative with the water theme, making colourful fish, a giant octopus and cool surfboards for their water themed sponsored walk.

We hope you have had fun fundraising, we’ve certainly enjoyed hearing about your stories. We’d like to say a huge thank you from everyone at CAFOD, and on behalf of the communities we work with around the world, for making such a splash!
