The school undertakes considerable community service and charitable work with the Jesuit and Kenya Missions, which have been regularly visited and supported by Campion sixth formers; with Crisis at Christmas and other charities such as CAFOD and the Brentwood Catholic Children's Society; and with many local schools, hospitals and charities. In the last year students and staff raised over £100,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Justice and Peace Group
As Jesus encouraged an outward expression of faith:
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in" (Matthew 25:35)
It is only fitting that as followers of Christ we have a huge commitment to helping others. We The School’s Justice and Peace group is open to everyone. Their role is to bring about awareness of the injustice that affects them and look for opportunities to make a difference in both our local and worldwide community. Over the past year they have helped raise over £1000 for CAFOD, provided over 200 shoeboxes full of gifts for the Christmas shoebox appeal and organised an incredible amount of food to be donated to our local Food Banks (enough to feed hundreds of families).
The whole school also participates in events such as Family and Lent Fast Days. Each year group makes a special effort to fundraise for a charity of their choice throughout the academic year, and then there's the ever successful Christmas Party when we play host to three hundred local pensioners during Advent.
