CAFOD - SUMMER OF HOPE

Author Frank Cottrell-Boyce will write a short piece based on what children have said they are hopeful about at this time. Frank will be capturing children’s thoughts and feelings at this challenging time and turning them into a unique piece of writing on behalf of CAFOD. 

In just one word, or one sentence, tell us what has given you hope. You can use pictures or designs to illustrate your words. 

Please ask permission from an adult to email your ideas to schools@cafod.org.uk before Monday 27 JulyIf you’ve put your ideas down on paper and you want to send a photo of it, that’s fine too! Don’t forget to include your first name, your age and your town.
