Hello to all the ladies at Our Lady and St Wilfred’s in Ventnor, Isle of Wight who hosted a deliciously sweet Lenten Lunch last week in aid of our Lenten Appeal.
The group provided a variety of soups and desserts which were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone! These homemade meals were charged at £6 per person and all the proceeds were donated to CAFOD. Thank you to everyone who was involved in hosting this fab event! We look forward to hearing more about your other fundraising events in the future!
These photos (above) have made us really hungry!
As you know, all these special lunches and suppers 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 to the appeal – up to the value of £3.5M. Terrific!
Thank you so much to everyone for helping our partners ‘Turn on the taps’ for thousands of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Uganda.
