The Church of Our Lady and St Edward in Lyndhurst is holding its 7th Annual Plant and Cake Sale in aid of Connect2: Ethiopia organised by Henry Rosenvinge and his team of CAFOD supporters on Saturday 13th May. There will be over 1000 flowers and vegetable plants, with garden bric-à-brac, and lots of freshly baked cakes. The sale is from 10am until 12pm at Henry’s house Dunelm, Silver Street, Emery Down in Lyndhurst. Entrance is £2 which includes tea, coffee and cake. Not to be missed!
Henry told us,
“We’re part of Connect2: Ethiopia which means we receive regular updates, photos and letters from people in the communities we are helping. We live in a rural area where people are sympathetic to changes in climate. Knowing that our money will be going towards improving the water supply in remote drought-stricken villages is so gratifying, especially hearing how people’s lives have changed for the better.
“The Parish of Our Lady and St Edward is united with the people of Sebeya in Ethiopia, and they are remembered in our thoughts and prayers. We’d ask as many CAFOD supporters as possible to come along to our sale and help us reach £2000 in aid of Connect2: Ethiopia.”
Many thanks to Henry, Victoria, Jill, Mel, Shelley, Fiona, Yvonne, Shelia, Adrian, John, James, Carole and Jo for all your help with this event. We look forward to hearing how it goes and hope that the sun shines!
