Thank you Robert!

A huge thanks to our supporter Robert Corry, who recently completed the London Marathon in aid of CAFOD (as you might remember from a previous post) and raised an amazing grand total of £2,615.46

Last Friday, Robert took part in a special “Thank You event” for supporters in the Southampton area (organised by our fantastic colleagues from Head Office) and presented the cheque for the money raised to Jorgé Castro from CAFOD partner Caritas Quiche in Guatemala.

Jorgé was the main speaker at the event and gave an overview of the projects Caritas Quiche is running, particularly the water and sanitation program that has been considerably expanded thanks to last year’s Lenten appeal and matched funding from the government.

Thanks again to Robert and all who supported him for their great generosity – and to all who came along on the evening, we had a fantastic time!
