Showing the love for Zambia

Many thanks to all our CAFOD volunteers and supporters from across the diocese  who came to the meeting on Saturday. It was fantastic to see you there especially those who had travelled a long way such as the Isle of Wight!

We had a fantastic talk from Mark Chamberlain ( Corporate Communications Officer) about life in Zambia and how a livelihood project about fish farming has transformed the live of Florence.

Then Dan Hale (Head of Campaigns)  spoke passionately  about upcoming campaigns in 2017 and encourage us to write to our MPs and  become MP correspondents.

Don’t forget that the main weekend of action for the Lent fast day is 4th & 5th March with the fast day on Friday 10th March.

There is a webinar by Sr Yvonne from the Sacred heart sisters in Zambia who helped Florence by training her to be a fish farmer on Thursday 23rd March at 1pm. Register for the talk here.

Thank you so much everyone – special thanks to our speakers Mark and Dan and also to Paul  (SE Community Manager) for all his help setting up and clearing away. A HUGE thank you to Mary and Imelda for organising the teas and coffees. Hope to see you all in September!

Many thanks Jo
