COP 26 Pilgrimage

19th October 2021
Our Mini Vinnies, joined pilgrims this morning who had walked from across Europe on their way to COP26 in Glasgow. 
 
Our school joined in CAFODs 'Go Green' and 'Eyes of the World' campaigns this year and then our Mini Vinnies looked at how they link to COP26.
 
They decided to make posters of support for the pilgrims, which were then presented to them at a prayer service in Berwick Baptist church. The pilgrims were delighted to see the children and thanked them for their support, the children then joined the pilgrims as they journeyed through the town onto the town walls before leaving them to continue to the Border.

We met one pilgrim who had walked all the way from Sweden!  She said many peoople had joined to walk along the way... in Germany a whole school of children walked with them to the Dutch border!
This was the banner the pilgrims held!  We learnt some German...
Geht doch....! = We can do it...!
