Mrs McElroy and the JPIC Team launched the ‘Loreto Family’ fundraiser at the beginning of the February Half-Term, to raise much needed funds for our sister school in Rumbek, South Sudan. Mrs McElroy reported on Monday 22nd February, ‘”We have been overwhelmed and very heartened by the generous donations from staff, students, family, and friends of Loreto to our virtual fundraiser through the Go Fund me link on our school’s Facebook page. Indeed kindness is its own reward. We are almost at our target of £1000. We will be closing this endeavour on Friday and this is a gentle invitation to those who still wish to give. It has been almost a year since Sr Orla graced our school to highlight the need for our continued support for Loreto Sudan and we are so glad that we can continue to help through fundraising, advocacy and prayer. A student recently quoted Anne Frank’s words that ‘No one has ever become poor by giving.’ So we would like to extend our sincere thanks to all who have donated and we look forward to achieving our target”.
