Grays Convent student receives award for short film

DURING a special assembly at Grays Covent School this morning, student Samantha received an award for a video she made highlighting how people can change the world by wasting less and buying fair trade goods.

Following a visit from CAFOD Brentwood volunteers, Samantha spent the weekend working on the short film with her sister Phoebe.

cafodIn the video the girls give simple tips on how we can all shrink our carbon footprint (doing everything from sending e cards to turning off electrical items which aren’t in use), live sustainably and support the world’s poorest people.

The award was presented to Samantha by Joan Risby, a CAFOD education volunteer.
