Join us for our Supporters’ Meeting!

Uganda Lent 2016

Join the CAFOD Portsmouth family at our next meeting on Saturday 23 January 2016 from 10am until 1.30pm at St Bede’s RC Primary School (Popley Way, Basingstoke, RG24 9DX) where we’ll explore our Lenten resources and hear more about CAFOD’s water programmes in Uganda from Mark Chamberlain, our Fundraising Writer. There will also be an opportunity to hear about the climate talks in Paris and our next steps from Sarah Croft, Campaigns Officer.  Book your place today!

Take a look at the morning’s agenda and poster.  Come along to meet other supporters, hear the latest news from our diocese and plan for the Lenten season.

And there’s some extra special news as our Lenten fundraising will have double the impact because we have been awarded UK Aid Match funding for our Lent 2016 appeal!

Receiving this grant for a third time is testament to the incredible generosity of the Catholic community. Thank you!

It means the UK government will match pound for pound every donation given to the appeal, up to a total of £3.5 million.   All donations made as a result of your Lenten activities that happen from Ash Wednesday 10 February 2016 to Monday 9 May 2016 will qualify.

Exciting times!

To book a place at the Supporters’ Meeting please ring 01252 329385 or email portsmouth@cafod.org.uk by 15 January 2015.
