Pupils have helped raise awareness of the plight of impoverished African children by carrying litres of water for two miles.

St Joseph’s Catholic College in Bradford and St Mary’s Catholic High School in Menston were among eight schools to take part in a “walk with water” event held by Catholic charity CAFOD.

More than 100 pupils carried water in buckets for two miles from Leeds to Kirkstall Abbey to raise awareness of how far children in poorer communities in Africa have to go to find safe drinking water.

The water was used by the pupils to plant sunflowers as part of CAFOD’s Dig Deep Lent Fast Day campaign.
