This week is Christian Aid week in school. This year the charity is raising money to support women in Ethiopia. Many women who live in the rural areas struggle to feed their families and find a source of income. In such communities people are only allowed to vote on community issues if they own cattle. Christian Aid are fundraising to provide women with cows. This gives them a voice in the community, milk, cheese and butter and a source of income. At school we will be having a non-uniform day on Friday and if any children would like to they can use the cow theme to help them dress up or paint their faces. If your child would like to take part please can you send them with a donation (we suggest £1) in their Christian Aid envelope.
