8:00am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
A mad-hair day at a Bradford primary school helped CAFOD raise £150,000 towards the Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
St Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School in Heaton was among supporters of the Catholic aid agency who took part in fundraising to help people whose lives have been blighted by last month’s disaster.
CAFOD’s manager for the Leeds diocese, Margaret Siberry, said: “People’s livelihoods and communities have been devastated in the Philippines and the churches there are playing a vital part in providing emergency relief and starting the rebuilding process. It’s extremely heartwarming to know local people want to help.”
