We also have Crazy Sock & Crazy Hair Day happening on Friday 21st October. A gold coin donation will go to Catholic Missions. This year’s theme is ‘Just as you did it to the least of these, you did it to me’. Children of Cambodia will benefit so that they can live life to the full without violence, and have improved opportunities to be educated. This will be the focus of our Friday afternoon prayer. We encourage all children to wear bright/zany/different coloured socks or hair and join in the fun.
