Almost a dozen members of staff are running the Leeds 10k to raise money for Catholic Care.

Preparations have included regular Friday afternoon sessions, sometimes in wet and windy conditions. There will be a whole-school non-uniform day in July to collect as much sponsorship money as possible.


Catholic Care is the social care organisation of the Diocese of Leeds. Catholic Care acts to support all those in need of its services, especially people experiencing disadvantage and poverty, and it acts as an advocate for those unable to represent themselves. They have worked for over a hundred years on behalf of children, families and adults in many communities in the Yorkshire area. This work currently ranges from an adoption and family finding service to supported living for people with learning disability, care homes, volunteer work and community projects.
