St Joseph's Penny

As it is the season of Lent, we will be collecting for the Salford Diocese charity, Caritas this year.

Usually, at this time of year, we would be filling our St Joseph’s Penny boxes with lots of pennies, however due to Covid restrictions, schools are not taking part in this activity at the moment.


We would like to invite you, instead, to wear your own clothes on St Chad’s Feast Day, Tuesday 2nd March 2021, in return for a £1 donation. We will collect the money we receive and send it directly to Caritas to support their St Joseph’s Penny appeal which helps local families who are in need, Caritas have already supported many of our families already this year,

The children will be learning about this wonderful charity over the coming weeks and we are looking forward to celebrating this special time of the year further, when all of the children are back in school.


If you would like to donate directly to the St Joseph’s Penny appeal, the details are below.
