CAFOD volunteers at Sacred Heart Fareham

Many thanks to John and Esme Vivian for organising our second Lent fast day briefing last night at Sacred Heart Church Fareham . Despite the wet and windy weather a good number of parish volunteers and supporters came along to find out about our work in Zimbabwe. So thank you to all those who came to the meeting.

We heard about how CAFOD’s partners had helped Marian to grow vegetables in a community garden so that her children can grow healthy and strong, and don’t suffer from malnutrition. Three million children die each year from malnutrition so helping families grow healthy food  for their children is vital work.  This Lent your donations will be doubled as once again we have been granted match funding by the UK government up to £5 million. Do come along to find out how you can help us to reach this target at our next 2 briefings.

3 February 10:30am to 1pm St Bede’s Church hall Popley Way Basingstoke RG24 9DX at this meeting Sally Kitchener our Fundraising Communications officer  will talk about her recent visit to Zimbabwe.

8 February 7:15pm to 9:15pm English Martyrs Church 64 Liebenrood road Reading RG30 2EB

Please book your place at which ever meeting is most convenient to you by emailing portsmouth@cafod.org.uk or call 01252 329385
