Good Shepherd Appeal 2022

Many people we support knock on our door in times of need, sometimes feeling lost, and we’ve chosen this year’s Good Shepherd Appeal theme as ‘Love one another as I have loved you,’ (John 13:34), as we look to extend the message that everyone is important and loved by God. At Nugent, we all strive to love one another as God has taught us to, and show care and compassion for others through acts of kindness.

The Good Shepherd Appeal is one of our oldest appeals and generations of schoolchildren have continued to support us by taking part. This year celebrates 120 years since the appeal began in 1902, and across the last 10 years alone, the appeal has raised over £500,000 to support our work.
Pupils at all the schools taking part really use their imagination and come up with some amazing ideas that their friends and staff can take part in.

You can download all the resources you need to run your Good Shepherd events at the bottom of the page.
