Advent – a time to think of others

A fund-raising event organised by my S3 RE class in Sgoil Lionacleit, Isle of Benbecula.

The RC S3 RE class recently rose to the challenge of doing something to help others in Advent. They organised a bake sale on Friday 13 December to raise money for SCIAF’s Advent campaign which this year focuses on the crisis in Syria. The appeal was sent out to schools, with information about ways in which the money would be used. For example: £18 can pay for warm blankets to help people survive low temperatures in emergencies;£39 can help run a mobile medical centre to give refugees vital care and support, and £85 can help a refugee child get the education and support they need.  The amount raised by the bake sale was an amazing £152.27.
