So many shocks at the World Cup this year…… are we in for a chance? Is it coming home?? Here at CAFOD in Nottingham Diocese we are delighted with our achievements and have surpassed our targets for the number of schools visited this academic year.
However…….. there are parts of the Diocese that don’t have regular visits from our schools team as we don’t have any volunteers in those areas. Areas where we really need to recruit are Lincolnshire, North Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Would you, or do you know someone, who may be interested in joining our wonderful Schools Volunteer Team? We provide excellent training and ongoing support.
Tricia and Ann completed their training last term and have been visiting schools, leading workshops on Share the Journey and presenting assemblies. As Ann told me, “I really enjoyed the excellent training from the CAFOD Schools team and visiting schools in our Diocese. It is a very rewarding way to spend a morning or afternoon. Come on give it a try!”
Tricia, following her visit to St Charles in Measham received letters of thanks from some of the students thanking her for her workshop
There is plenty of time to apply and attend our two training days next term. Both days are in York, as we provide training in the Region covering the Dioceses of Hexham & Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Leeds, Hallam and Nottingham. It really gives you an experience of being part of something bigger, of sharing skills and knowledge and ideas.
Every term we also provide a training day for current volunteers to introduce new resources for assemblies and workshops that we can offer our schools. Why not come along to the next one to find out exactly how we work?
By supporting our schools you will helping to educate and inform students about the fight against global poverty and injustice and helping them put their faith into action.
Trust me, you will be inspired, motivated, overawed and impressed by the engagement of our students!
