Cake Sale Raises Hundreds for our Lenten Appeal!

Corpus Christi

Richard Arthur and Anne Benfield have just been in touch to let us know that the generosity of parishioners from Corpus Christi, Boscombe know no bounds!

A fantastic £724 was raised from the Lent Fast Day collection and a further £338 was raised from last Sunday’s second cake sale making a grand total of £1062.  Just look at those cakes piled high! How fantastic!

Richard said:

‘We gave people special dispensation from their Lenten fasts for one day as they were contributing to a good cause. As usual thanks must go to the talented trio of Pam, Annie and Maureen, plus other helpers and not forgetting Annie’s husband David who baked most of the cakes.  Also additional thanks to Greg, David and Kate who helped me to deliver the CAFOD appeal at all the Lenten  Masses.”

Thank you everyone indeed!  For more information on our Lenten appeal, please go to
