As a Catholic School within the Diocese of Leeds, we ensure that our fundraising supports the priorities of the Bishop, which is why we principally support CAFOD and Catholic Care:
Each Year the children of the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust (BKCAT) present and vote for a charity for all schools within the trust to support during the academic year.
Previously, we have supported the African Children's Choir. Last Year, we supported the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, raising as a trust a massive £15,917.12.
This year, our school was fortunate enough to win the Charity Presentation event, which means our chosen charity will be supported across the trust during the 2016-17 academic year. Our school selected the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Our children chose to present and support this charity as one of the children within our school suffers with Cystic Fibrosis and the children wanted to do something to support this pupils own fundraising efforts and to support her and her family. Further information will be posted here during the year. For Further details on the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, please visit their website: https://www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk/
Cystic Fibrosis is a life – limiting inherited condition for which there is currently no cure, fortunately many treatments are available to manage it. This year’s bid is close to our hearts in Castleford, as a current pupil carries the condition. The proposal came from the love of her sister, who wanted to give something back in belief that the day will come, when people with CF can live a life unlimited by their condition. St Joseph’s Castleford feel that this is their opportunity, along with all Academy Trust schools, to help make this happen!
Over the forthcoming months we will be holding a range of fundraising events:
As a Catholic family, we can all make a huge difference to a charity, who work for life to be unlimited, for those with Cystic Fibrosis.
To donate yourself, not only is there a collection tin in the school entrance, you can also visit our BKCAT just giving page for Cystic Fibrosis: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Bkcatcharity2017CF
Thank you for your support.
We were blessed with perfect weather conditions and just so happened that we were completing the walk on the same day as the 3 peak race. We completed the walk in 3 hours and 28 mins and enjoyed a spot of lunch at the top of Pen-Y-Ghent peak. Along our walk we were greeted by many generous fellow walkers who in total donated £120 for our trust charity. We thank them for their generosity.
