Charitable Work

Charitable Work

As a Catholic school, we always seek to give alms to those in need. We fundraise throughout the year for a variety of charitable causes, including global, national and local charities:

Global:  Mary's Meals, which sets up a schools' feeding programme in the world's poorest countries and CAFOD. 



National: The Good Shepherd Appeal- Fr. Hudson's Care








Local: Stoke-on-Trent Food Bank

Current Fundraising: Spring 2020

Our charity focus this term is the Good Shepherd Appeal for Fr. Hudson's Care. Fr Hudson's is a charity that operates within our Dicoese, and we at St Joseph's benefit from it personally, through the work of Jackie Kelsall, our Family Support Worker. Jackie, and the team at Fr. Hudson's, work on outreach projects with familes, the vulnerable in society, the homeless, the elderly- reaching out to all sectors of our local society to provide support and comfort for those in need. All families have been provided with a collection box in order to donate to this worthy cause, All money raised is donated to Fr. Hudson's Care at our annual Good Shepherd Mass in June, where representatives from schools across all of North Staffordshire will present a cheque to Bishop David McGough. Please give generously to this important charity. 


Fundraising: Autumn term 2019

Our school focus for the Autumn term is fundraising for CAFOD. We have joined forces with our other eight Collegiate schools and are aiming to raise £4000 in total to buy a health clinic to support the most vulnerable in the world, providing medical care for their community. Phil Mayland joined us for a whole school assembly on Monday 23rd September to launch our fundraising events and explain to us the right for everyone to live a healthy, happy life. We learnt how children in Uganda and other parts of the world do not have access to fresh water, enough food to keep them healthy or an education. We will be holding a wide range of fundraising events as a whole school and as individual classes throughout this term in our quest to contribute to the Health Clinic.
