Year 8 students from St Mary’s College, Hull spent time reflecting on the Nepal earthquakes during a recent residential retreat at The Briars, Crich.
In groups the students created temporary shelters from waste materials, considering what it would be like to loose your home, possessions and perhaps your livelihood in an instant, as well as potentailly coping with the death of family and friends. The young people also offered prayers for all those affected by the earthquakes and those trying to support them.
They decided to collect donations following their tuck shop break and raised an more than £200 for the CAFOD Nepal Earthquake Appeal in about 30 minutes. Thank you to all those involved for a truly amazing effort!
