“Fishing” at Reading Uni Freshers’ Fayre!

There was such a buzz at the Freshers’ Fayre at Reading Uni yesterday! We had a CAFOD stall there for the first time and really enjoyed the lively atmosphere!

To make the stall more lively, we decided to copy a great idea from our lovely colleagues in Liverpool (thanks James and Chris!) – and brought along a “vintage style” fishing rod game – stall visitors were competiting in the challenge of catching as many fish as possible in 1 minute! Congratulations to overall winner David who managed to catch an amazing total of 24 fishes!

The game was a great way to introduce our Hungry for Change campaign (with our action cards featuring loaves and fishes, as you know) and get everybody to add their voices and call on our government to make the global food system fairer. Over 100 students signed the action cards, which is fantastic – thank you so much everyone! 🙂

The stall was also an opportunity to invite the students to volunteer and get involved with us. If you are interested in the opportunities we offer and what you can get out of them, please download our leaflet for uni students and get in touch! We would love to hear from you!

A HUGE thanks to our fantastic volunteers Roger Lillie and Linda Heneghan who helped us run the stall the whole day – you are such great CAFOD ambassadors!
