O well done to all our CAFOD volunteers at St Theresa of the Child Jesus in Totton who organised a wonderful supper recently in aid of our Lenten appeal and raised a whopping £400! Brilliant! Such a great community event!
The cost of the supper was £5 which was an absolute bargain! There was also a special water quiz and raffle, and participants watched our special ‘One Climate, One World’ DVD.
As you know, the proceeds from this supper will have double the impact this year because we have once again successfully secured UK Aid Match Funding for our Lenten appeal. This means that the UK government will match pound for pound every donation made – up to the value of £3.5M. Terrific!
Thank you so much to everyone at St Theresa of the Child Jesus for helping our partners ‘Turn on the taps’ for thousands of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Uganda. Our special thanks goes to Edna Wharton who kept us updated throughout and to Sarah Taplin Walker (Jean’s daughter) for sending us these lovely photos!
