It’s the first day of December! The day we begin opening our Advent calendars as we countdown the days to Christmas.  But at CAFOD, we add a few extra days to the countdown and aim for 27th December.  After Christmas Day and Boxing Day, for the next most important event is of course… The CAFOD Fun Run!


We appreciate that the last few weeks of term will be busy for you, but I wonder if I could please invite you, your school and children’s families along. The event takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 27th December 2021 at Wavertree Athletics Centre, Wellington Road, L15 4LE.  Registration is from 10am for an 11am run!  It will be a cold day, so wrap up, or dress up festive to embrace the fun!  We’ll have our jazz band, The Rioters, performing live as usual to bring some festive cheer and hot drinks available to warm you up!


If you can’t make it on the day, we’d love for people to participate virtually and run wherever and whenever they like!  Sponsorship and donations can be made via


We would be really grateful if you could please help us to promote the fun run through the following ways if possible!


Please find attached the poster to promote the event, I wonder if you would please be able to:

  • Display the poster on your school noticeboard for parents to see.


  • Share the poster on your school website and social media.

- Please like and share our social media posts promoting the event too!




 We are CAFOD in Liverpool



  • Include it in your school newsletters in the lead up to Christmas please?


  • Please do encourage teachers to join in the fun and come along too!


I do hope that you’re able to help us and I would really appreciate a response to confirm that you’ve received this email ok and are able to help to promote the fun run.

Many thanks for your kind support in advance, the event simply wouldn’t be a success without as much promotion as possible!


Best wishes
