East Anglia school staff to run marathon for Cafod

Four staff members from two Diocese of East Anglia schools are set to run the London Marathon in April 2024 for Cafod and are asking for your support.

In April, Chelsea Crowe (pictured above left), Jack (pictured above right), Imogen and Lindsay from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, and St Benedict’s Catholic School, are taking part in the London Marathon in order to raise funds for CAFOD and its work to support those in need around the world. If you are able, they would be so grateful for any donations you can make to support them and this vital charity. They are going to be training hard all the way to the race date to make everyone proud and to raise as much as possible for CAFOD.

Chelsea Crowe, School Secretary at St Mary’s, Lowestoft, said: “Working in a Catholic school has really opened our eyes to the magnificent work that CAFOD does around the world to support those in need. We have been fortunate enough to work with CAFOD in school and were hugely inspired by the work they do. We wanted to do our small bit to help their marvellous work and believed that completing the London Marathon would be a great way for us to challenge ourselves and support this great cause.

“We are not professional runners and so we are working hard to get race-ready for April. We know it will be a gruelling day (the training is already pushing us) but it could not be for a more worthwhile cause and we are determined to do CAFOD proud on the day. If you were able to support us in this it would be greatly appreciated – no donation is too small and it all goes to a fantastic cause!”
