After hearing about CAFOD’s work at the supporter’s meeting in Basingstoke in February Jane McCarthy from St John Bosco parish in Woodley decided to get involved and raise funds for CAFOD. Her family had always been supporters of CAFOD especially her Dad who was a regular monthly donor until he passed away. A keen runner Jane started training for The Great South Run which takes place on Sunday 22nd October. The race is 10 miles or 16 kilometres around the streets and historic places in Portsmouth. She has set a just giving page and is asking for sponsorship so please support her by going to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/janemccarthy77
Many thanks to Jane for a fantastic way to fundraise for CAFOD and we hope to post some photos of her on the Great South Run later on. Has Jane inspired you to fundraise for CAFOD? If so do let us know so that we can celebrate your achievements on our blog.
