Children join in song to end water poverty
May 30, 2012
Children in Bracknell joined voices with others from around the country to call for an end to water poverty.
The Thirst for Change campaign was brought to St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Primary School in Pembroke by charity volunteer Hugh Gibbons, from Bracknell.
Hugh, an education volunteer for CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, was among a team who prepared a display of water droplet messages outside Westminster Cathedral in London on Tuesday, May 15. He also helped present a petition to Downing Street.
Hugh arranged for children from the Bracknell primary school to sing We Thirst for Change, joining hundreds of other people from schools and churches.
Hugh said: “The campaign has been an immense success, thanks to the great efforts by schools and parishes and individuals across England and Wales.”
