The things we do for charity!

St Benedict’s School in Ealing celebrated its Patronal Feast on Friday 15th April. Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor con-celebrated Mass at 11.00am in Ealing Abbey with the Benedictine Monastic Community and the whole school. The afternoon was devoted to fun activities but with a serious purpose – to raise funds for four chosen charities: Colourful Dreams School in Malawi, HCPT The Pilgrimage Trust, Sisters of Scholastica in the Philippines and Villa La Paz Foundation in Peru. The total sum raised was £6885.76. There was Donut bobbing and a Big Balloon Bounce Off, Head and shoulder massage and Piñata bashing. The ever popular Haunted House had a long queue and the CCF ran an air rifle range and organised the climbing wall. In the sports hall the Sumo Smash attracted a huge crowd, which stayed to watch the exciting Dodgeball, while the Music department was generating a lot of noise with the Open Mic and the Rap Battle. Pupils and staff alike launched themselves wholeheartedly into the spirit of the event and were generous in their contributions. English teacher, Dr Julie Greenhough summed up: “Ah, the things we do for charity at St Benedict’s School!”
