After the phenomenal success of last year’s International Evening, the Reading Pastoral Area CAFOD volunteers are back with another great event to raise funds for our Lenten appeal! And this time of course – all proceeds will have double the impact due to UK Aid Match Funding!
The Harvest of Talents event will feature many different parishioners from all over Reading performing a song or dance to celebrate the rich diversity of the Catholic community in the area and raise much needed funds!
The evening will take place on Friday 24 April 2015 at 8pm at the Reading Irish Centre, 96-104 Chatham St, Reading RG1 7HT. Tickets are £5 and will be on sale after all Masses across the Reading area.
Don’t forget that this Lent, the UK government will match every pound donated to CAFOD’s Lent Fast Day appeal up to the value of £5 million, from Wednesday 18 February to Friday 17 May. This means that all donations made as a result of this fantastic event will have double the impact, helping even more people living in extreme poverty overseas. Brilliant!
