As soon as they found out about the appalling weather and flooding in the Phillipines, two Year 7 pupils from Upton Hall School FCJ decided that they wanted to do something about it.  Following an assembly in school on the work of the FCJ sisters in Manila, they decided to organise a car wash to raise money to support the work of the sisters.  Together they raised £67.00.  In the words of the students,  " We know that the money will be put to good use to help improve the lives of children in the Phillipines"
